Do I Need to Pay VAT?
Not If you have a disabling condition and are registered as ‘chronically sick or disabled’
If you have a disabling condition and are registered as ‘chronically sick or disabled’ and the goods or services are for your own personal or domestic use you do not need to pay VAT for your purchases!
If you are unsure whether you qualify you can check the governments definition here: (https://www.gov.uk/definition-of-disability-under-equality-act-2010) although HMRC staff cannot advise whether or not an individual is chronically sick or disabled.
Or you can seek guidance from your GP or other medical professional.
When making a purchase you can tick the VAT Exemption box at the checkout and fill in the details or download our VAT Exemption form here.
