VAT Declaration Form for Personal Use Equipment

As per VAT Notice 701/7 published by HM Customs & Excise, certain specialised goods and services needed by disabled people may be zero-rated for VAT – when purchased by a disabled person for domestic or personal use or by charities who provide care and facilities for disabled persons. Please note that there is no requirement for you to be registered as disabled.

HMRC regard disability as a ‘physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities’ – eg hearing loss, visual impairment etc. Please note there are heavy penalties for making false declarations to avoid paying VAT. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult HMRC Guidance: Reliefs from VAT for disabled and older people (VAT Notice 701/7), available online here or contact the HMRC National Advice Service on 0845 302 0203 before submitting this declaration.

If a parent, spouse or guardian acts on behalf of a ‘chronically sick or disabled’ person, your supply is treated as being made to that chronically sick or disabled’ person
