start-up simplifies tourist tax refunds

A new all-in-one app called Tourego aims to make the process of claiming for tax refunds as hassle-free as possible for tourists and local retailers. Launched just three months ago, the app allows retailers to scan the QR codes generated via the app so that tourists can receive digital tax refund tickets. These e-receipts are stored in the app and users can scan them at the tax refund kiosks upon reaching Changi Airport.
