Is it possible to claim VAT back for my Wigs?
You can claim the VAT back on your wig purchase (VAT currently stands at 20%) if you are receiving chemotherapy, have alopecia or have a disabling condition in line with HMRC guidlines. It does not matter how many wigs you purchase, you still have the right to claim back the VAT on each wig that you purchase. If you are unsure if you can claim back the VAT, click on the following link for clarification of VAT notice 701/7 or call on 0300 123 1073, for advice.
Making a false declaration to the HMRC is fraudulent and is to be avoided at all costs!
What can I claim a VAT refund for?
Refunds can only be considered on purchases of wigs and qualifying hairpieces. VAT cannot be reclaimed for any accessories or any aftercare products (including shampoo, conditioner, styling brushes or products).
How much is VAT relief?
VAT at the current rate – 20%.
We have implement a system at our checkout stage that once selected will automatically deduct the appropriate VAT from your wig purchase so there is no need for any further calculations. Once the full process has been completed the price less VAT will be charged.
