VAT Eligibility

Are you eligible for VAT relief?

SOME products supplied to a disabled or chronically sick people can qualify for Value Added Tax relief
There are, however, criteria that must be reached in order to obtain such relief from VAT and for each purchase the customer must complete a declaration to satisfy these conditions
We can only zero rate supplies to;
Disabled or chronically sick people**
Charities
Certain eligible bodies
As a supplier we take steps to check that a customer is eligible to receive goods or services at the zero rate
**A person is ‘chronically sick or disabled’ if he/she is a person:
with a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities;
with a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes; or who is terminally ill.
It does not include 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.
If a parent, spouse or guardian acts on behalf of a ‘chronically sick or disabled’ person, the supply is treated as being made to that ‘chronically sick or disabled’ person
