Save 20% VAT On Applicable Purchases at Poole Mobility

Did you know, if you are chronically sick or have a disabling condition you may be eligible to receive VAT relief on applicable purchases, saving you 20%. This can prove to be a substantial discount on more expensive products.

However, this doesn’t only include mobility accessories such as living aids, wheelchairs, mobility scooters and chairs. VAT relief can also be claimed on hire and repair services too.

To get an applicable product VAT free your disability has to qualify. For VAT purposes, you’re disabled or have a long-term illness if:

  • you have a physical or mental impairment that affects your ability to carry out everyday activities, for example blindness
  • you have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes
  • you’re terminally ill

You do not qualify if you’re elderly but able-bodied, or if you’re temporarily disabled.

If you are in any doubt about claiming VAT relief, you can speak to a member of our staff , contact the C&E National Advice Service or consult the Custom and Excise Notice for ‘VAT Reliefs For Disabled People’ .
