About 0% vat eligibility
Our interpretation of the rules concerning VAT relief.
For a purchase to be qualify for VAT relief;
A product is purchased by an individual or on behalf of that individual by a third party or charity and that individual is chronically/terminally ill/disabled.
Someone with temporary disability due to a broken limb for example, cannot claim vat relief.
The product being purchased must be designed specifically for a disability or illness.
A product in general use that assists with someone’s disability does not qualify.
A product that is designed for a disability but can be used generally will still qualify when purchased by a qualifying individual.
Strictly speaking VAT is charged but at 0% rather than the prevailing standard rate – currently 20%.
All products for sale on this website indicate whether they meet the vat relief criteria or not.
