Q & A
VAT Relief for people with disabilities
If you have a disability or long-term illness, you may be able to buy some of our products without paying any VAT. The government allows certain products to be zero-rated for VAT purposes (i.e. no VAT needs to be charged) to reduce the cost of the practical products which you may need because of your disability. Here are some of the more commonly asked questions about the scheme:
Who qualifies for the VAT Relief?
You qualify for the relief if you have a disability or a long-term illness (but please note the definition of this below) and youre buying the product for your own personal or domestic use.
You dont have to buy the goods yourself. If your parent, guardian or spouse buys the goods or services for you, then you won\\\\\\\'t be charged VAT.
What counts as a long-term illness or disability?
For VAT purposes, you have a disability or long-term illness if you meet any of the following conditions:
• you have a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon your ability to carry out everyday activities
• you have a condition that the medical profession treats as a long-term illness, such as diabetes
• you are terminally ill
So, you wont qualify if you\'re elderly but otherwise able-bodied, or if you\\\\\\\'re only temporarily disabled such as having a broken leg.
Which conditions are considered to be long-term illnesses?
Youre eligible for the VAT relief if you have one of the following conditions:
Motor Neuron Disease
I am registered as disabled. Does this mean I am automatically exempted from VAT?
No. There is no blanket exemption from VAT for disabled people.
What counts as personal or domestic use?
Personal or domestic use means that the goods or services are supplied for your own private use, rather than for business purposes.
Also, the goods or services must be just for your own use - not for use by anyone else, or for use by a group of chronically sick or disabled people in general.
Can a charity claim VAT Relief on products bought for an eligible person?
Yes, provided the product is to be used by a single eligible person, or series of eligible people, rather than being put to general use.
Do I need to claim the VAT back from HM Revenue & Customs?
Theres no need for you to contact HMRC, as the supply will be treated as zero-rated for VAT purposes if you qualify for the VAT relief. All you have to do is complete a short form and declaration on purchase. It\'s really easy and hassle free.
