AM I VAT EXEMPT?
Can I claim back VAT on Wigs ? You can claim the VAT on your wig purchase, human hair or synthetic currently set at 20%, if you have alopecia, are receiving chemotherapy, chronically sick or have a disabling condition. You can purchase as many wigs as you like and you still have the right to claim back the VAT on each wig that you buy. If you are unsure if you can claim back the VAT, click on the following link for clarification HMRC Helpline or call on 0300 123 1073, for some advice. Option 3 (this takes you straight through to the right people!).
PLEASE ONLY APPLY FOR VAT EXEMPTION IF THE ABOVE CONDITIONS APPLY TO YOU. FALSE CLAIMS TO HMRC ARE NOT ADVISED.
