Are you eligible for VAT relief?

HMRC states that if you are “chronically sick or disabled” then you can purchase goods without VAT when purchased for your personal or domestic use. A parent, spouse or guardian is able to purchase on behalf of a “chronically sick or disabled” person and obtain the VAT relief.

HMRC defines “chronically sick or disabled” as physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities or a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness – this includes diabetes which will be the main reason for your purchase on our shop.

HMRC defines “personal or domestic use” as goods used for your own private use, rather than for business purposes. It cannot be used by anyone else or “chronically sick or disabled” in general.
