How does it work?

1. Request Invoices

Purchase receipts or retailer’s own tax-free forms are not accepted. You must specifically request shops to issue business invoices (or “facture” in French) addressed to Airvat before making purchases. WarningImportant: read invoicing instructions.

2. Upload Invoices

Take full clear pictures of your Airvat invoices each time you make a purchase in any online or physical store. We will combine all of your Airvat invoices from different stores into a single digital tax-free form.
