But who is behind SkipTax ? Here are some of our team members...
Raphael, Pascal Alexandre and Thierry have set themselves the challenge of revolutionising the tax-refund sector in order to give control back to the end consumer. Indeed, the refund procedures are known to be long and tedious, many tourists do not get their VAT refunded on their purchases because of the long procedures that can last from 2 to 3 months.
Thus, the idea was to simplify and digitise all these administrative procedures, with the aim of making the refund accessible to all, in full transparency. In December 2019, after almost 2 years of intensive work in direct partnership with French customs, the young startup Skiptax became the first approved and certified digital refund service in France !
He is the CEO of Skiptax, in charge of all Strategy, Finance and Partnership. Graduate of Dauphine, he has a master in financial engineering. First, he started his career in M&A consulting at KPMG. Then, he moved to entrepreneurship and the development of international startups in Europe.
Entrepreneur since he was 19, he founded an e-learning website for medical students, which is now a reference in the field. In 2018, he joined Skiptax, after graduating as a computer engineer, specialising in business. Alexandre brings his expertise and creativity to the team. In fact, he is in charge of Skiptax’s product strategy. Also, he helps in the development of partnerships.
