Mobility Product VAT Exemption Explained
As a mobility retailer, most of our products qualify for VAT exemption (i.e. the customer does not pay VAT if they qualify for VAT relief). This exemption applies to almost all items in our showroom including mobility scooters, stairlifts, riser recliner chairs, walking aids, toileting aids, replacement parts for mobility products and much more.
Who qualifies for VAT exemption?
VAT exemption is accessible for anyone with a chronic illness or disability on products designed to assist them. Here is an extract from the Government VAT relief webpage:
If you’re disabled or have a long-term illness, you will not be charged VAT on products designed or adapted for your own personal or domestic use. Also, you will not be charged VAT on:
· the installation and any extra work needed as part of this
· repairs or maintenance
· spare parts or accessories
How do I get VAT exemption at A6 Mobility Shop Stockport?
Items that qualify for VAT exemption do not have VAT added to the price already. (i.e. the prices you see are the prices you pay.) We ask you to fill out a short form on your invoice / receipt to declare your qualifying medical condition.
Does it matter if I’m buying a product for someone else? For example, I want to purchase a mobility scooter for a relative.
It does not matter if you buy the product yourself or for somebody you care for so long as the VAT exemption information provided is accurate.
