    I ready the sticky post on VAT tax refunds, but 1 still have one question (in a couple parts).

    So potential VAT refund on products exported but not on services.... Clearly the daily rates of a hunt would be services. But are the trophy fees or any part of the hunt considered 'products' and therefore refundable? If so, how does one go about obtaining a refund as the 'product' is at the dip and pack facility. Just need to show appropriate receipts/documentation from the outfitter.

    I'm sure it's too much to hope of that any part of this is refundable, but figured I'd ask!

    Trophy fees are not subject to VAT tax, only wounded or non exported animals.

    Thanks @jeff. At up to 20% rate, that makes a big difference!

    Yes no VAT on trophy fees ! Trophies need to be exported either dip and pack or mounted in 18 within 18 months to qualify for Zero rate.
