Who can claim VAT relief?

Chronically sick or disabled customers can purchase riser recliner chairs VAT-free if they meet certain criteria. According to HMRC, you must have the following:

  • a “physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect on your ability to carry out everyday activities”
  • a “condition that the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness (that’s a long term health condition)”

Unfortunately customers with temporary conditions (such as a broken bone) will not qualify.  The chair must also be for your own personal use. You can find out more information about the VAT exemptions available for chronically sick or disabled people via the HMRC website. If you’re unsure whether you qualify, it’s recommended that you consult your doctor; you can also call our friendly customer service team who will be able to help you. Though it’s worth noting that the vast majority of our customers do indeed qualify for VAT exemption; as a rule of thumb, if you expect you will require help getting out of your chair for the foreseeable future then you’ll qualify.


How do I claim my VAT-free purchase?

If you’re eligible to claim VAT relief, you’ll need to declare this when purchasing your riser recliner chair – our website will guide you through this process easily and efficiently. We display the VAT-free price on our products since the vast majority will be purchased VAT-Free, then in our online checkout we just require you to click a box to declare that you are buying our product as a medical device – it’s that simple.
