Taxes on shopping

Value added tax (VAT) is a fact of life when buying stuff in Ireland. Luxury goods have a VAT of 21% while non-luxury items are slapped with a 12.5% VAT. But there’s somewhat of a good news for those who belong to countries not part of the European Union. Such people can claim some of this tax back when leaving the country although this only applies in certain conditions.
