What is TRS?

Shopping in Australia, most of the goods are subject to about 10% of the goods and services tax (GST) or 14.5% of wine tax (WET), and TRS (Tourist Refund Scheme) is for small partners shopping in Australia can enjoy welfare!

What conditions are met for tax refund?

▶️ The product purchase date must be60 days before departure,以商家开出的税务发票为准;▶️ 在同一商家一次或多次购物,对应的Valid invoiceAmount (including GST/WET)Cumulatively AUD 300 or more;▶️ 商品在GST/WET paid at the time of purchase, Goods that do not need to pay tax cannot be refunded.


有效发票需含有:√   “Tax Invoice”字样√   商家名称√   商家的澳大利亚商业代码(Australian Business Number),即ABN√   商品的购买价格,包括支付的GST

√   商品描述以及购买日期

√   另外,1000澳元或以上的税务发票必须同时显示买家的姓名和地址。

What is the tax refund process?

各大机场的退税柜台都是24小时开放的,可以在离境当天提前抵达办理。根据购买商品的尺寸、液体容量是否符合机场安检的要求,退税流程大致分为两种:▶️ 可随身携带上飞机的,通过安检后在候机大厅的退税柜台办理;▶️ 超大尺寸、必须托运的商品,如超过100ml的液体(鱼油,化妆品,蜂胶,酒等),Passengers need to go to the tax refund service counter (before entering the customs) after arriving at the airport. After being checked by the Australian customs staff and stamping the original valid tax invoice, they can go through the boarding and consignment procedures.After the security check, go to the tax refund counter in the departure area with your stamp to process the tax refund. When arriving at the TRS counter, you need to show the staff:

·    本人护照

·    登机牌

·    相关有效税务发票原件及商品,或已盖章的发票原件


请注意,在出入海关前后分别有一个TRS柜台哦,前一个是工作人员检查需要托运的退税商品然后在发票上盖章的,而过海关之后的柜台才是用来办理退税的!√   建议可随身携带的最好不要托运,以免办理退税时,工作人员会抽查商品;√   根据行业惯例,退税柜台将于航班起飞前30分钟停止办理,大家要预留好时间,以免耽误行程。

Can I refund cash directly?

目前申请退税后退款选择有以下三种:·    信用卡/借记卡(Amex、Diners、JCB、MasterCard、Visa)·    澳大利亚银行账户·    支票(可以使用不同货币支付)


Tax refund will be completed within 60 working days. Usually, the processing time for refund to credit/debit card is relatively short, which is more convenient than mailing a check!
