Will I be able to enjoy tax-free shopping in the UK after Brexit?

December 24, 2020, 4 pm: The information on this page will possibly be updated in accordance with the partnership between the EU and the UK.

Up to and including 31 December you will not be able to shop tax-free in the UK. Until that date, all current EU agreements and rules will still apply to the UK.

Travelling to the Netherlands from abroad

You are strongly advised not to travel to the Netherlands unless it is strictly necessary. You can find out more on the page about Travelling to the Netherlands from abroad.

After the transition period

Tax-free shopping may become possible if the UK is treated as a third country (non-EU/EEA country) after 31 December 2020. It is still unclear what arrangements the UK will offer for tax-free shopping.
