In countries outside the EU, we deliver your mail orders free of VAT. This does not apply to Switzerland. As a citizen of a non-EU country shopping at a Louis store, the price you pay at the checkout includes German VAT. Read here about how to get the VAT refunded in this case.
Conditions for payment of a refund
VAT reimbursement is generally only available for citizens of non-EU countries..
Goods that serve as equipment for or for the maintenance of a private means of transport (e.g. motorcycles, passenger vehicles, station wagons, pleasure crafts, yachts, planes) are excluded from the tax exemption. The affected goods include both motor vehicle parts that are fixed onto the vehicle (e.g. racks, casing parts, replacement parts, crash pads, etc.) and also movable parts used to equip the vehicle e.g. tow-ropes, spare tyres, first-aid box. Goods for the maintenance of a vehicle (e.g. battery acid, cleaner etc.) are also not subject to the tax exemption applicable to exports for non-commercial transport.
