In the UK, disabled people do not have to pay VAT when buying certain disability aids and services (This can be claimed by friend or family member purchasing on their behalf). Not everything supplied to disabled people is necessarily zero-rated for VAT. Goods and services on which you do not have to pay VAT are usually known as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief'.is

Seat opening measures 10.6" x 8" (269.2 mm x 203.2 mm) supporting a maximum user weight of 420 lbs (190.5 kg).
Lightweight, all-plastic construction, for strength and durability, the Savanah has a gently contoured surface for extra comfort. The seat slopes slightly forward, allowing easier lowering and raising and has a deep splash guard to minimise soiling. Resistant to stains and odours, it is fully sealed and easy to clean. The large rear cut-out on the Savanah gives clearance for the coccyx, makes rear personal hygiene possible. The wide front cut-out also allows easier access for personal cleansing. The two L-shaped moulded plastic brackets, on the Savanah, have bonded rubber non-slip buffers to keep the toilet seat firmly in position. These brackets can be easily adjusted to fit on most sizes and shapes of a toilet, by the use of two large, fluted turning knobs. This makes fitting and removal of the seat very quick and easy. The Savanah has no front bracket, or front turning knob, to avoid snagging skin or clothes. The front is secured by a lip. Includes a moulded plastic lid to create a more pleasing appearance.

In the UK, disabled people do not have to pay VAT when buying certain disability aids and services (This can be claimed by friend or family member purchasing on their behalf). Not everything supplied to disabled people is necessarily zero-rated for VAT. Goods and services on which you do not have to pay VAT are usually known as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief.
Who is eligible for VAT relief?
You must be 'chronically sick or disabled' to qualify for VAT relief. The HMRC comment on this is as follows. A person is 'chronically sick or disabled' if they either:
have a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and severe effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities;
have a condition that doctors treat as a chronic sickness - like diabetes, for example;
are terminally ill
VAT Relief on our Disability Aids
All products on the Aids for Mobility website are flagged with an option to claim VAT relief during Checkout if it applies to that item. When you add a zero-rated product or service to your Basket, you will be asked to tick a checkbox to confirm that you, or the person for whom you are buying the item, are eligible for VAT Relief.
How VAT relief works
If you are claiming VAT Relief you will be asked to complete an extra few questions during Checkout, where we will ask you to provide brief details of your disability and confirmation that the product is for 'personal or domestic use'. We will keep a record of this declaration along with your order details. You can then buy the product(s) in your Basket at a price that excludes VAT. You will be asked to make this declaration each time you place an order that includes zero-rated products. It is a legal requirement that we record this information for every order, and we apologise for the inconvenience.
