VAT Exemption Entitlement
Under current legislation an end user or his or her representative may in certain circumstances be able to claim exemption from VAT on products purchased from this website.
The main criteria for such exemption are:
- The products themselves qualify for exemption. To find out more you will need to click the view button below the brief description shown against each item and, where applicable, the words VAT Exempt will appear
- The person seeking exemption is chronically sick or suffers from a disabling condition. By definition this means that the person either:
- has a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and severe effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities
- has a condition that doctors treat as a chronic illness eg diabetes or
- is terminally ill
Exemption from VAT can then be claimed by ticking the VAT Exemption Eligibility Details box at checkout, and by you or your carer, at this point, satisfactorily completing the VAT declarations shown.
If you are in any way in doubt as to your rights under the legislation please consult VAT Notice 701/7, Reliefs for Disabled People, or, contact the HMRC Charities/Disabled Relief from VAT Helpline on 0845 302 0203
