Am I eligible for VAT relief on disability equipment?

 

In general, disabled people do not have to pay VAT on goods and services that are designed/ or adapted solely for use by disabled people. These goods and services are often called ‘zero-rated’ or ‘eligible for VAT relief’.

The majority of suppliers will know if their product has been specifically designed to help disabled people. They will offer their products free of VAT at the point of sale.

You’ll need to confirm in writing that you meet these conditions. Your supplier may give you a form for this.

Most suppliers will use the Notice 701/7 VAT relief for disabled people form.
