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.

Most suppliers will know if their product has been specifically designed to help disabled people. They will offer their products free of VAT as you buy them.

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

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

For further information see our VAT Exemption for Disabled Goods Information Guide or call our helpline on 0300 323 9961.
