Products on our website that are specifically adapted to aid disability or for the chronically sick are eligible ( this is the wording from HM Revenue and Customs not our wording) for VAT relief. These products are shown with prices including and excluding VAT.
These products are only available at zero-rate VAT when purchased directly by an individual for their ‘domestic or personal use’. In order for us to meet “yours and our” obligations to Customs & Excise, and in order to avoid paying VAT on certain items, you will be required to sign a simple declaration form at the checkout that confirms that you are eligible to receive goods which are zero-rated.
Please note we are only able to exempt VAT from the actual goods, all delivery charges will attract VAT as normal.
Your final shopping cart price will include VAT for all items that are not eligible for relief.
The zero-rating of goods and services for a disabled person depends in part upon the status of the recipient.
In order to qualify for zero-rating, the eligible person must be ‘chronically sick or disabled. The items must not be purchased for the general use of other non disabled persons. Items for use in an institution, or re-sale are not eligible for zero-rating.
Chronically sick means that you have an illness that is likely to last a long time e.g. arthritis, diabetes, and angina. Disabled means substantially and permanently disabled by illness or injury.
To claim relief from VAT, you must specify the nature of your illness or disablement in the VAT relief declaration.
A frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb does not qualify for VAT relief.
If you are in doubt you should call your local Customs office or call the National Advice Service on 0845 302 02 03.
You must be sure of your eligibility for VAT relief before completing the declaration. You can order on behalf of another person and complete the form accordingly.
You must be sure of your eligibility for VAT relief before completing the declaration. Section 39.2 of the VAT Act 1983 provides for severe penalties for anyone who makes use of a document which they know to be false for the purposes of obtaining VAT relief.
