Pay Zero VAT
If you see an item priced as ‘Excluding VAT’, this is because Her Majesties Revenue & Customs (HMRC) allow us to sell the item/s without VAT (Zero Rated) to certain customers.
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, for example blindness
- you have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes
- you are terminally ill.
This definition does not include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb.
You don’t need HMRC’s permission to declare that you’re disabled or chronically sick and their advisers can’t tell you whether or not you’re disabled or chronically sick. If you’re not sure whether your condition means you’re chronically sick or disabled you may wish to consult your doctor or other medical adviser.
We will supply the appropriate form for you to complete which simply requires you to insert your name, address and details of your disability or chronic sickness. We will then keep this form on file should HMRC wish to inspect.
If you don’t feel you qualify for Zero VAT pricing then we can still supply you a riser recliner and we will simply add the VAT on for you. Please call us to discuss on 01384 372908.
