Planet Tax-Free and the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) of the United Arab Emirates have launched a paperless tax refund service for tourists.

The FTA and Planet Tax-Free presented the new tourist tax refund program on September 14.

The new strategy employs a digital platform along with registered till systems and is paperless. All visitors need to do to complete their transaction is scan their passports. Then, Planet Tax-Free receives an automatic digital invoice for their transactions.

Customers can access the user-friendly shopper site to examine their invoices when their purchase is complete. Additionally, this gateway guarantees seamless, quick, and digital tax-free buying experiences for tourists.

The following are some benefits to the environment of switching to a paperless VAT-return system:

-The UAE will yearly save 16,800 trees by using less paper.

-There is a reduction of 6,500 toner cartridges.

-The country will cut its CO2 emissions by 4,224 tonnes.

-Finally, they will reduce the amount of national resources used in the production of paper.

-This includes 32,500 kWh of electricity and 5.52 million liters of water.
