If you are disabled or have a long term chronic illness, you may be eligible for VAT relief. The government allows certain products to be zero-rated for VAT purposes to reduce the cost of the products which you may need because of your disability. In general, the products covered by this scheme are things that are of practical help to you because of your disability or illness.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult HMRC via their website https://www.gov.uk/financial-help-disabled/vat-relief or the HMRC National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000.
Which products are eligible for VAT relief?
The UPWalker Lite and its accessories are all subject to VAT relief for those eligible.
Who qualifies for VAT Relief?
You’ll only be able to have eligible goods VAT-free if you’re chronically sick or disabled and the goods are for your personal or domestic use.
You do not need to be registered disabled or eligible for any other benefit to qualify for VAT-free goods.
What counts as a long-term illness or disability?
For VAT purposes, you’re chronically sick or disabled if you have a:
• physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect on your ability to carry out everyday activities
• condition that the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness (that’s a long-term health condition)
For VAT purposes, the term ‘chronically sick or disabled’ does not include a person who’s only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, for example with a broken leg or someone who’s elderly but is not chronically sick or disabled.
You do not need HMRC’s permission to declare that you’re disabled or chronically sick and our advisers cannot tell you if you’re disabled or chronically sick.
If you’re not sure if your condition means you’re chronically sick or disabled, you may wish to consult your doctor or other medical adviser
Which conditions are considered to be long-term illnesses?
You may be eligible for the VAT relief if you have one of the following conditions:
Motor Neuron Disease
Other Mobility related disability or Illness.
I am registered as disabled. Does this mean I am automatically exempt from VAT?
No. There is no blanket exemption from VAT for disabled people.
What counts as personal or domestic use?
This means that the goods are made available specifically for the use of an individual disabled person.
The following are not ‘personal’ or ‘domestic’ uses and are not VAT-free:
• Products used for business purposes
• Products supplied to or for an in-patient or out-patient of a hospital or to or for a resident of a nursing or care home where the goods are for use in the care or treatment provided in the hospital or nursing or care home
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 rather than being put to general use.
How do I know if I qualify?
If you feel you meet the qualifying conditions above, you may seek VAT relief following your purchase by completing the necessary form that will be provided in your UPWalker Lite shipping box. That form will ask you to provide details of your condition and to make a legally binding declaration that we may be asked to provide to HM Revenue & Customs.
Can I claim the VAT back from HM Revenue & Customs?
No, there is no facility for HMRC to refund VAT to you.
