Vat Relief for Disabled People

If you’re disabled or have a long-term illness, you will not be charged VAT on products designed or adapted for your own personal or domestic use.

The product and your disability have to qualify.

How to get the product VAT free?

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

You do not 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. We have forms that you can use to confirm your eligibility.

On presentation of this declaration we will not charge you VAT on your applicable purchases.
