VAT exemption is available to all clients who wear wigs for necessity reasons. If you require a wig due to alopecia, hair loss as a result of chemotherapy treatment or any other medical condition that causes hair loss, and is confirmed by a GP, you are classed as a necessity wearer and are entitled to receive the VAT off the cost of your wig at the time of purchase.
Please note: VAT exemption applies to wigs only and do not apply to accessories.
You will be provided with a form when purchasing your goods from our salon. This form will need to be completed, signed and handed back to your stylist. For further information please speak to one of our consultants.
If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods or services zero-rated for VAT you should consult Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people available at www.hmrc.gov.uk or by contacting the VAT Disabled Reliefs Helpline on 0300 123 1073 before signing the declaration.
