VAT Exemption Eligibility
To be eligible for VAT relief, you must have a disability or long-term illness that qualifies. In accordance with the VAT exemption guidelines you are disabled or have a long-term illness if:
- you have a physical or mental impairment that affects your ability to carry out everyday activities
- you have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness
- you’re terminally ill
If you are elderly but able-bodied, you will not qualify. If you do meet the criteria, you will need to acknowledge it in writing. Our mobility advisors can help you with this. Further information can be found here HMRC website.
