To be eligible for claiming back VAT and qualify for the government scheme, you must meet the following criteria:

1. You (or who you are buying it for) are chronically ill or disabled , this means someone:

  • With a physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect upon his or her ability to carry out everyday activities, or
  • With a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes.
  • Who is terminally ill.

It does not include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb

2. The goods are for personal or domestic use, this means:

  • The goods are supplied for your own private use, rather than for business purposes.
