If you have any questions or doubts regarding eligibility for vat relief, you are very welcome to contact us and we'll advise you as best we can. However, you should refer to the HMRC website for more detailed information.
In a nutshell, there are two elements to this 1. Providing you are the recipient of the product or it is being purchased on your behalf and for your sole benefit in respect of a disability you have, then you should qualify for vat relief. 2. Vat relief is only available on qualifying products. This means the product being purchased has been designed specifically for the purpose of assisting the user with their disability.For example, a red, standard toilet seat does not qualify for vat relief, but a raised toilet seat has been designed to assist a person with a disability and will qualify.
