Tax Free system to be launched in cities hosting 2018 World Cup starting April 10
The Tax Free system will be launched in several cities hosting the 2018 World Cup from April 10, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Viktor Yevtukhov said at a press conference.
"Since April 10, the outlets that will participate in the system, within the locations, so far the limited number that were defined, will be able to do it. Thus, the foreign citizens who purchase goods that are now in the system will be able to receive a partial VAT refund," TASS cited Evtukhov as saying.
He expects the system to launch across the country by the end of 2018.
"I hope that by the end of the year we will develop it all over Russia. I think that at the end of the year it will be decided that we will move from pilot to work across Russia," the minister added.
