The Revenue Department has chosen Counter Service Co as its agent for value-added tax refunds for departing foreign tourists from Oct 1 to March 31.

Director-general Ekniti Nitithanprapas said there were three applicants for the initial six-month pilot project. Counter Service was the only one chosen 

The company would offer VAT refund services at its Lido, Bangkok Night Bazaar and Phadungdao (Chinatown) branches, he said.

After six months, the department would evaluate the project and decide if it should be permanent.

The Revenue Department had posted full details on VAT refunds on its website www.rd.go.th/vrt and would publicise VAT refunds through the agent, Mr Ekniti said.
