VAT Relief for Disabled or Long-term Illness
If you are registered disabled or as having a long term illness, and you are buying a product which has been designed or adapted for a disability and it is for your own personal or domestic use, you may be eligible for 0% VAT.
More details about who qualifies (copied directly from GOV.UK):
"For VAT purposes, you’re disabled or have a long-term illness if:
- you have a physical or mental impairment that affects your ability to carry out everyday activities, for example blindness
- you have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes
- you’re terminally ill
Unfortunately, you don’t qualify if you’re elderly but able-bodied, or if you’re temporarily disabled.
You’ll need to confirm in writing that you meet these conditions." You can add this to "Special Instructions" when you check out.
