VAT Exemption For Disabled People

Thursday, 1 June 2017  |  Tom

We stock a large range of CSB Battery rechargeable battery sets for mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs; subject to eligibility we can supply these with VAT exemption for the disabled.

In simple terms this allows you to buy your batteries without the 20% VAT, which represents a significant saving. All you have to do is fill in a simple declaration prior to purchase.

To be eligible you must qualify under government regulations—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
  • You have a condition that is treated as chronic sickness
  • You're terminally ill

The batteries must be for your own personal or domestic use.

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

No actual proof of your disability is required—you simply have to complete a declaration prior to purchase stating that you are entitled to VAT exemption and the nature of your disability.

Please email, post or fax the form back to us prior to making your purchase and we can supply your battery order VAT free. Just to be 100% clear, we must have the completed form before you make your purchase; we cannot refund the VAT retrospectively.
