What is Tax Relief?  And do you qualify?

 

At Smart Move Mobility, we do not need to go into your personal medical condition in detail.  All we require are a few details, which include the condition you have which entitles you to VAT Relief.  We do not need letters from your GP or any documentation from you regarding your condition.  All we need is a declaration from you, that the item is for somebody who is classed as chronically sick or disabled.

 

By law, companies are not allowed to charge VAT on certain items, such as Mobility Scooters, to customers who are entitled to Tax Relief.  To qualify for Tax Relief, you, or the person for whom you are buying the product for, must be classed as 'chronically sick or disabled'
