For a product to be eligible for VAT relief they need to be designed to help people with disabilities. The vast majority of our products on our website are eligible for VAT relief. Although, some of the products on our site were created for general purposes for around the house, and do not qualify under the government’s standards.
On our website, you will see two figures showing the prices of the product with and without VAT exemption. The larger text will show the price of the product without VAT, whilst the smaller text will be the price with VAT.
You are eligible for VAT Relief if:
If you are purchasing goods & claim VAT relief on behalf of another person, we will ask you to provide some personal information (of the individual you are buying for) at checkout. This can be self-declared by the purchaser using our form before checkout, or it can be done over the phone.
The Government requires that customers fill in a simple declaration setting out the nature of their disability and/or chronic or terminal illness.
Here at Sunshine Scooters, we do not require any proof of your disability; Although, you should remember that it is an offence to falsely claim that you or someone you are buying for is eligible for VAT relief. It is also an offence if you claim VAT relief for a business unless you are a registered charity.
