1. How to understand that a store is a VAT payer?
99% of all stores (retailers) are VAT payers and provide invoices / checks where it is indicated: VAT equals 20%, which defines them as payers. If you make a purchase in a small store and you have doubts, you can check with the seller if the store is a VAT payer (VAT taxable retailer). You do not need to look for a store where the Tax Free operator logo is on the window.
