Global Tax Free Co., Ltd. was established in Korea in 2005 as the first tax refund agent in Asia. Since then, they have not only opened tax refund windows in Incheon International Airport, Gimhae International Airport, and Jeju International Airport but also proactively deployed businesses overseas. They now promote businesses in Korea, China, Japan and Singapore, and have partnership agreements with approximately 5,000 member stores.
Global Tax Free Co., Ltd. has established a secure and highly convenient electronic tax refund system. This system has enabled extremely easy and swift refunds when tourists receive tax refunds for purchased products.
In July 2015, Global Tax Free Co., Ltd. opened a tax exemption service desk in Canal City Hakata, a commercial facility in Fukuoka prefecture where foreign tourists are increasing as a gateway to Asia. The new launched service desk is providing the tax refund proxy service.
Prior to the launch of the business in Fukuoka, JETRO’s Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) supported the company by providing information such as company registration, visa, taxes, and incentive.
