VAT Exempt Eligibility
If you are disabled or have a long-term illness you will not have to pay VAT on products that are designed or adapted for your own personal or domestic use. All our recliner chairs, adjustable beds and bath lifts are eligible for VAT exemption.
How it Works
To get the VAT relief, you must have a disability or long-term illness that qualifies. For the purposes of VAT exemption, 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, eg blindness;
– you have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes;
– you’re terminally ill;
It is worth noting that, if you are elderly but able-bodied, you will not qualify. If you do meet the requirements, you will need to confirm in writing. Our advisors can help you with this if you need. To find out more visit the HMRC website.
Medical Conditions Acceptable for VAT Exemption
There are too many medical conditions to list here, but some of most common ones include arthritis, knee/hip replacement, COPD, fibromyalgia, and diabetes. For a full list, or to find out more, give us a call and speak to one of our advisors.
You can find detailed information on the HMRC website.
This company are amazing
This company are amazing my dad has a very rare muscle disease and needed a custom recliner to meet his specific disability needs. I cannot recommend them enough both Shaun and Adam were amazing and super patient with dad. We are very happy with all their work and the price too. The recliner is super comfortable and the laying position is perfect for dads swollen legs, he can now lay back with his legs higher than his hips which was a specific requirement from his consultant. They came to our home as we couldn’t get dad to their show room, they came in full PPE, and brought a chair with them for dad to try. Thank you so much Shaun and Adam. You have made my dads life so much more comfortable and extremely safe.
Excellent ethical service from Channel Healthcare and Shaun McCluskey
After a couple of disastrous visits from National companies last week I was recommended to call Shaun McCluskey for an assessment for a riser/recliner chair my elderly mother.
He visited today to assess my mother, my sisters who were present described him as ‘brilliant’ and were so impressed they ordered the chair this afternoon at a price that was far less than the National companies who visited last week.
Cannot thank Shaun and Channel Recliners enough for providing such an excellent and ethical service.
