UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 15, 2017. The Ural Bank for Reconstruction & Development keeps expanding the range of non-banking services it can offer its customers. Together with TaxFree4U LIMITED, the bank recently launched a mobile tax return application for its private customers; the app is useful to get your tax money back on purchases made in Great Britain, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and Finland. UBRD cardholders can download their TaxFree4U app via AppStore or Google Play.

According to the bank’s press service, the tax return option is particularly useful around New Year break, when people go traveling around their home country and abroad.
