VAT refund scenario

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to London, Paris and Amsterdam and am pretty sure I will buy a handbag that would qualify me for a VAT refund in Paris.

From all the research I've done, you're supposed to process you VAT refunds at your last stop in the EU (in my case, Amsterdam) but the VAT Web site for Amsterdam says it will ONLY process VAT refunds for purchases made in the Netherlands. Am I completely out of luck with regards to my purchases in London and Paris?

Thank you so much for any help you can give!
