At Seenin we specialise in clothing and accessories for Children and Adults with special needs, therefore the majority of our products qualify for zero-rated VAT or VAT exemption. This is because the UK government provides some special rules that we can apply when certain conditions are met.
There are three conditions that must be met for us to supply products at a zero rate of VAT. These are:
- You declare that you (or the person for whom you are purchasing the products on behalf of) are chronically sick or disabled
- The products that you are purchasing are eligible to be supplied at a zero rate of VAT
- The products that you are purchasing are being supplied to you (or the person for whom you are purchasing the products on behalf of) for domestic or personal use only
When you order from us and wish to claim VAT exemption whether on our website, by telephone or by post, you will be asked to fill in and sign a VAT exemption declaration. The declaration confirms that you, or the person for whom you are buying on behalf of, is exempt from paying VAT. You will need to give your full name, the medical condition and name of the person who qualifies for VAT relief.
When you order through our website you will fill in the VAT exemption form during the checkout process. There is no need to fill in a duplicate form online or send via email.
When placing a telephone order you will be asked to fill in and supply us with a VAT exemption form.
We are permitted to receive VAT exemption declarations online, by email as well as in paper form. You can download a VAT exemption form below or complete the form online.
If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible for VAT exemption please contact us before placing an order and we will be happy to talk you through the process.
Charities, disability organistions and other businesses should contact us directly to place an order.
Seenin is by law required to keep a record of all the customers who have qualified for VAT relief, their names, addresses and qualifying medical condition and present this information to HMRC if required.
Please note that it is an offence to falsely claim that you or the person you are buying for is eligible for VAT relief.
For further information on VAT exemption please review the Customs Notive 701/7 on the HM Revenue & Customs website.
