Can I get a GST refund if I am a foreigner and will be taking bullion that is still taxed out of Singapore
There are different ways of getting a refund for your GST depending on how you are leaving Singapore.
If you are leaving Singapore by air from Changi Airport, you can get your GST Tax Refund via Premier Tax.
You may purchase over the counter from us and collect the tax refund immediately at the airport. However, you will not receive the full 7% refund from them as they will charge a service fee. Most of the time you will be able to receive about 6.2% of the purchased value back.
Can I cancel an order after I have submitted the order?
All sales are final. They are not cancellable, refundable or returnable. In the rare event that GSC approves the cancellation of the order, the customer will be subjected to our market loss policy which states that:
Once an order is submitted and a confirmation number (invoice number) is given, the transaction is valid and it may not be cancelled unless the individual is willing to bear the difference in the ask price based on our current ask price, if any, and an additional SGD$50.00 cancellation fee which is subjected to GST.
Any market gain in price will not be refunded.
There is a admin fee of SGD$50.
