If you have a long-term illness or are disabled, you don't have to pay VAT on certain goods and services that you buy in the UK. In general the equipment covered by this scheme are things that are of practical help to you because of your illness or disability.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult the HMRC National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000 or click here.
What counts as a long-term illness or disabled?For VAT purposes, you have a long-term illness or are disabled if you meet any of the following conditions:
- you have a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon your ability to carry out everyday activities.
- you have a condition that the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes.
- you are terminally ill.
You don't have to physically buy the goods in person. If your parent, guardian, wife or husband buys the goods and services for you, then you will not be charged VAT.
