    Actually its the locals who for the most part are paying the tax however in many cases stores will not charge the tax if you present your passport at the time of payment :)
    VAT exists in many non European countries Canada, Peru come immediately to hand.

    In any event that topic or their existence is really not related to the above subject.

    Airport VAT scam: WHSmith, Boots and Dixons 'reminding' staff of boarding pass rules

    WHSmith, Boots and Dixons have been "reminding" their staff that they cannot force customers to show their airport boarding passes amid outrage at VAT savings not being passed on.

    Labour MP Chris Bryant and Dragon’s Den presenter Duncan Bannatyne are among the thousands of airport passengers vowing to refuse to hand over the documents in an effort to prevent retailers making millions of pounds.

    The practice, where stores demand that passengers present their boarding cards at checkouts before paying for any goods, was first revealed by this newspaper last week.
