VAT relief for disabled people
If you’re disabled or have a long-term illness, you won’t be charged VAT on products designed or adapted for your own personal or domestic use. Also, you won’t be charged VAT on:
- The installation and any extra work needed as part of this
- Repairs or maintenance
- Spare parts or accessories
The product and your disability have to qualify.
Look out for the VAT Exempt products when browsing the site. All products showing this logo are eligible for zero-rated VAT.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people) or the HMRC National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000.
How to get the product VAT free
To get the product VAT free your disability has to qualify. 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, eg blindness
- You have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes
- You’re terminally ill
You don’t qualify if you’re elderly but able-bodied, or if you’re temporarily disabled.
