During the transitional period which ends on 31 December 2020, there will be no change to the VAT Retail Export Scheme and so UK citizens will not be eligible to use this scheme. How the scheme will operate after the transitional period will depend on the outcome of negotiations on the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
