Planet launches digital Tax Free in the Faroe Islands

Planet launches digital Tax Free in the Faroe Islands


5 October 2020


  • Planet’s digital Tax Free service benefits Merchants and eligible shoppers with a faster and smoother real-time way to process, validate and claim back VAT on purchases

  • Removes the need for customers to endure lengthy queues at airports to process customs paperwork, enhancing the overall shopping experience

  • Plays a key part in promoting the Faroe Islands as a unique tourist and retail destination

Payments provider, Planet, has launched a new digital Tax Free service for Merchants and shoppers in the Faroe Islands. It builds on Planet’s successes in Finland, the UAE, Bahrain and Turkey where it has digitised Tax Free Shopping, enhancing the retail experience enjoyed by customers.

 

The Faroe Islands is a unique destination that experienced double-digit growth in tourism in 2019, with 110,000 tourists spending 731 million Danish Krone, and with ambitious plans to grow tourism and spend over the next few years. Planet has worked closely with the Faroese Authorities over the past months to develop the fully digital VAT refund service.

 

The innovative service is fast and easy to use, benefiting Merchants and shoppers. By digitising the process, it removes the need for customers to complete long complicated forms or queue at airport customs offices to present paperwork for verification. Instead, customer’s eligibility for Tax Free shopping is validated in real time. Using a QR code, purchase details are saved online ready for the tax refund. Shoppers receive their refund simply by scanning their passport and boarding pass at a Planet kiosk or desk at the airport, saving them valuable time.

We are excited to see the Faroe Islands embrace digitisation and the rollout of our digital Tax Free system. Merchants are busy welcoming back shoppers and our new service will help them to deliver a better retail experience, and to get more value out of a growing market.

Nicki Bech, Country Manager Nordics, Planet

Planet is busy rolling-out the new service to Merchants across the Faroe Islands. Registration is simple and entirely online with most Merchants being up and running in as little as five days.

 

Digital Tax Free also benefits the tax and customs authorities since everything is digital, from reporting and setting risk parameters, to preventing fraud.

 

The launch in the Faroe Islands is part of Planet’s wider strategy to introduce digital Tax Free shopping across the Middle East and Europe, for the benefit of Merchants, shoppers and authorities.

 

Peter Daly, President of Tax Free at Planet said:

 

"We are delighted to have launched Planet’s innovative digital Tax Free service in the Faroe Islands, making it quicker and easier for Merchants and tourists to process VAT refunds.

 

"Our team, led by Nicki Bech, Country Manager Nordics, has worked tirelessly to deliver this exciting proposition. We are confident that Planet’s experience, along with the strength of our offering and commitment to placing our customers at the centre of everything that we do, will help reinforce the ambition of the Faroe Islands to offer a unique shopping experience."

 

Nicki Bech, Country Manager Nordics, adds:

 

"We are excited to see the Faroe Islands embrace digitisation and the rollout of our digital Tax Free system. Merchants are busy welcoming back shoppers and our new service will help them to deliver a better retail experience, and to get more value out of a growing market.

 

"Last Autumn, Guðrið Højgaard, Director for Visit Faroe Islands, set an aim to double the number of tourists and spend before 2025. We are proud to be supporting the Faroese authorities to help deliver a Tax Free shopping system which will help promote the islands as a unique shopping destination and achieve their ambition to strongly grow tourist numbers in the wake of COVID-19.

 

"Our Nordics team are privileged to be working so closely with the great people of the Faroe Islands and are exciting about the opportunities this new era of digital Tax Free shopping will bring."
