With the growing demand of specialist mental health beds and the shortage of NHS supply (as publicised in the media over the past couple of years) we knew that there were many customers that were suffering. So in 2013, we also introduced specialist beds, mattresses and furniture meeting the requirements of those with mental health demands or challenging behaviours such as autism & psychiatric disabilities. We also knew that these can be expensive for the average family or customer, so we decided that it would be a great service to offer VAT Relief and Disability Discount for charities and for customers suffering from a disability.
UK VAT Exemption
You are eligible for UK VAT Exemption if you are a chronically sick or a disabled individual and the products are for your own personal use, 'Chronic' meaning; persisting for a long time or constantly recurring. Also, if you are a registered charity where the goods are made available to a disabled individual for personal and domestic use. Full details can be found on the HM Revenue and Customs website.
At this stage we can only offer Full UK VAT Exemption on our Electric Adjustable Beds and Recliners. However, we are still willing to offer you a 5% DISCOUNT on any of our products (excluding delivery), if you adhere to VAT Guidelines and are declared Disabled.
Please enter the following discount code EXEMPT5 at the checkout and the discount will automatically be applied to your order. This option is only available for individuals who are declared disabled in line with the Government guidelines. Further information is available via the HM Revenue and Customs website.
Please note there are penalties for making false declarations.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult VAT Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people via the HM Revenue and Customs website or contact the National Advice Service on 0300 200 3700.
