‘If you live in the UK and have a disability or illness, you do not have to pay VAT on certain products that are of practical help and are for personal or domestic use. SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is an example of a condition that qualifies for VAT relief.
To claim the relief and purchase certain products VAT-free, you must complete the short VAT Relief Declaration by selecting the VAT-free option on the product page, or alternatively at checkout.
When you complete this form, you are agreeing to the Conditions and that you are claiming relief from Value Added Tax under Group 12 of Schedule 8 to the Value Added Tax Act of 1994.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods zero-rated for VAT please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note there are penalties for making false declarations. You can claim VAT relief in the same way if you are buying a product on behalf of someone else who meets the criteria above, but it is only valid on products shipping to the UK.
