tax free Shopping

Steen & Strøm Department Store has partnered up with Global Blue to offer an immediate tax free service for our foreign customers.

If you don’t live within the Nordic countries, you can claim up to 19 % of the value-added tax (sales tax) you have paid on your purchases in Norway. This tax is included in the price. If you spend more than NOK 315,- at S&S, ask for a Global Blue Tax Free Form. When leaving the EU, you can cash the form at a Global Blue Refund office or at an agent office.
