Extended VAT relief on adapted motor vehicles for disabled people

Extended VAT relief on adapted motor vehicles for disabled people

So, after all the doom and gloom that our political parties have petulantly thrown at us ! At least for disabled people there is a small light at the end of the tunnel. Of course this comes in the form of extra VAT relief.

So, all the relevant information can be found on the Government web site link at the bottom of my article. Pleasant news in my opinion. Batteries fitted to the certain types of vehicles in the will be exempt of VAT. Similar to the way that electric wheelchair batteries can be bought exempt of VAT.

AGM batteries can be purchased without VAT providing the wheelchair owner is registered disabled.

Short form filled in by us to claim VAT exemption !

All our customers have to do is to inform us with the name and address of the registered person and give details about the illness. So, now people with specifically adapted vehicles can also claim VAT back on their battery purchase. Of course by filling in the appropriate VAT exemption form on our website. Bellow is an extract from the Government regulations that I think covers replacement batteries . Including converted car batteries and converted van batteries and indeed converted motorhome batteries.

“The repair or maintenance of an adapted motor vehicle can be zero-rated when the work relates to a vehicle (or an adaptation to a vehicle) that was eligible for zero rating when it was bought or supplied.

If you take the vehicle for repair or maintenance to a third party garage you will need to produce the original purchase invoice for the vehicle or adaptation to confirm that it had previously been supplied at the zero rate.

Suppliers that did not supply the vehicle will need to check the original invoice for the purchase of the vehicle to confirm that it was supplied at the zero rate. You should keep a copy for your records”.

Find out how to apply for VAT relief on adapted motor vehicles, if you’re eligible to buy these vehicles and the evidence you need to supply them.
