Do Lenovo UK participate in VAT reclaim scheme?

Hi

I will be shortly buying a X220 from Lenovo UK website but will be taking this overseas (outside EU) and wish to know if Lenovo take part in the VAT reclaim scheme - whereby Lenovo send me a VAT reclaim form with the notebook, i fill it in and upon leaving the country, i hand this in to UK customs at the airport, show them the laptop and my passport (showing non-resident status) and they refund me the VAT paid. I did email UK Lenovo customer services but i didn't get a clear answer.

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Do Lenovo UK participate in VAT reclaim scheme?

Hi,

hope this topic is somehow still active. I am also trying to get an X220 for my business outside of UK (in EC) but the information I get from Lenovo and HMRC are not helping. Lenovo suggests I reclaim VAT myself but HMRC say that I should be 0-rated from the beginning from Lenovo or I should have the VAT returned to me as son as I prove I took the laptop out of the country.  They also suggest that lenovo is obliged to do so under the principles of one common (EU) market.
Anyone has with an answer on this?

Cheers
