How do I receive VAT Exemption?
- Some of our products have been designed solely for the use of disabled people and are therefore entitled for the VAT exemption if the end user of the product is also eligible.
- To waive VAT on a purchase, HMRC requires a simple declaration to be made as to the nature of the disability at the time of ordering. No proof of disability is needed be shown to any party at any time.
- To be able to purchase products VAT free, you need create an account on the website, through this link. We need to know the name and address of the person the item is for. Once the account is created and the above information has been provided, VAT exemption will be applied to all eligible products.
- Once an order has been placed and confirmed, the price quoted at the time of purchase will be honored, and no retroactive application of VAT will be applied to the order.
- Should you need to change an item on your order, or amend your delivery address, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please note that any amendments may result in your order being delayed.
