How I claim for tax refund?
Ans: A 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) is levied on most goods and services. Tax can be refunded if you spend a minimum amount of SGD 300. Receipts of SGD 100 or more from different shops participating in the tax refund scheme can be pooled to meet the minimum requirement.
Minimum Requirement to claim tax refund:
- You are eligible if you are not a citizen or permanent resident of Singapore, and if you have not exercised employment in Singapore during the past 12 months.
- You are eligible if you spend above the minimum amount of $100 during your stay in Singapore.
- You are eligible if you export the goods and depart from Singapore Changi Airport within 60 days from the date of purchase.
When shopping in Singapore, ask the Premier Tax Free affiliated retail outlets for your Premier Tax Free GST refund voucher. Select your refund method, sign the voucher and attach your supporting sales invoice.
At the point of departure from Singapore Changi Airport, you must present your Premier Tax Free refund voucher, goods and sales invoice documents to Singapore Customs for approval.
Then simply bring your approved refund voucher to Premier Tax Free to receive your refund.
