We will send confirmation of your refund request for you to sign. This will authorize us to seek a VAT refund on your behalf.

You don't pay anything in advance. From the VAT refunded by the authorities, we keep 18% but minimum CHF 100.-. On high amounts our % is less. When we send you a confirmation of the filing of your request, we also confirm that percentage of the refund that we need for our  fees.
