VAT Relief on Our Mobility Scooters
At Wild & Wacky, we understand the confusion that can follow VAT Relief guidelines when it comes to mobility scooters. But, don’t worry, we’re here to help!
On this page, we are going to simply outline everything you need to know about VAT exemption and answer the common questions that you may have. This way, we can all be on the same page and you can get Wild & Wacky with peace of mind.
What You Need to Know
All of the prices shown on the Wild & Wacky website are excluding Value Added Tax (VAT). So, if you qualify for VAT exemption, then you are simply charged the VAT-free amount and you don’t have to bother with the hassle of reclaiming it from the government.
Here are some common questions about VAT relief on mobility scooters answered:
– Physical or mental impairment that has a long-standing and substantial adverse effect on the ability to perform daily activities
– A condition where doctors treat it as a chronic sickness; for example, diabetes is treated as a terminal illness
You are not considered as ‘chronically sick or disabled’ if you have a temporary injury or mobility impairment, like a broken leg, or if you are elderly and frail yet otherwise well and not disabled.
Due to Class 3 mobility scooters being intended for use on the road, they are not usually VAT-free. However, if they have been designed solely for disability and impaired mobility, they can be purchased with VAT relief.
If you have your eye on one of our wonderful and wacky mobility scooters but aren’t sure if it can be bought VAT-free, don’t hesitate to contact us and ask one of our friendly team members.
