How strict are they with the 60 day rule?

I've got the same question.

If I am leaving Thailand on 60th day, can I get Vat Refund?

For example I've bought notebook on 27 Jan and want to go abroad on 27 March, will I get Vat Refund in this case?

They are very strict on the 60 day rule. I bought a watch and was under the (wrong) impression that the time limit was 90 days. When I made the cliam at the airport, I was 1 (one) day overdue; NO VAT refund.

This happened 8 months ago.

Well, I don't like it. Before the new policy, you'd get the total of said VAT refunded, which amounted to 7% of the purchase price.

I for one was not aware of this new policy when I purchased a laptop last week in Pantip Plaza, and had an unpleasant surprise:

Total Payment = 29000 Baht

Total VAT = 1956.07 Baht

Total VAT Refundable = 1500 Baht

Now I wonder whether the 100 Baht fee still apllies?

Anybody has experience claiming VAT refund while on another visa than tourist or visa exemption stamp? I got an ED at the moment and will spend 2 weeks at home over christmas, can I reclaim VAT or not?

For the others: Did they check your tourist visa and stuff or only the vat refund form and a look at the product?

That explains my recent go at it.....

I thought I'd been short changed but as I shouldn't qualify I didn't query it despite noticing.

I am here on a retirement extension.

Can I claim VAT refund when I leave Bangkok next month?

Just bought a laptop,Will be taking it with me and have required forms.

Only about 1700 baht tax to reclaim if possible.
