A special counter will be opened at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Katunayake tomorrow for re-payment of 15% VAT to the foreign tourists on their departure, for the goods purchased by them during their stay in Sri Lanka, the Finance Ministry said.

Minister of Finance and Mass Media Mangala Samaraweera will declare open the new counter at the departure terminal Tuesday evening.

“This procedure that has been proposed by the budget 2018, is implemented by the Department of Inland Revenue (IRD) and the business enterprises should register with IRD under this programme for repayment of VAT to become eligible under this scheme,” the Ministry said.
