    I want to buy a laptop in the Netherlands. I'll be going back to the UK shortly. Would I be able to get a tax rebate on the laptop at the airport? Or is it only for countries outside of the EU?

    I have never claimed VAT back from the Netherlands, but have claimed it back on purchases made in the UK when I used to live outside the EU. That was the condition though, only visitors from non-EU countries could claim a VAT refund which I assume would mean that there is some sort of cross-EU arrangement for sale taxes. At a guess without actuating googling this - I would think that you can't claim it back, sorry.
