Purchasing Zero Rated VAT Wigs

Are you registered with Alopecia or undergoing chemotherapy?

If yes, you could be eligible to purchase wigs without paying the V.A.T (Value Added Tax) and save 20% on the purchase price. This aplies to U.K customers only. Excludes any wig already reduced and advertised as a discontinued style.

You are only entitled to VAT relief on the recommended retail price for wigs only as set out by HMRC. Accessories, hairpieces and hair care products are not subject to zero rating of V.A.T. Any official or additional, original documentation you supply to us in order to validate your zero rated V.A.T claim, will be returned to you (E.g. NHS forms or doctors certificates). We can accept a photo copy of the original.

Please download the V.A.T Relief form in Adobe Acrobat format for further information and full ordering instructions.


NOTE: We have to have an actual signed copy of the V.A.T relief form, as this is a legal requirement as set out by HMRC. For further details and to check your entitlement to V.A.T relief on wigs, please call us on 01273 262799..

How to work out the cost of a wig without V.A.T

Exapmle 1) If you are unsure as to how to calculate the price of a wig without V.A.T, then divide the price by 1.2 rounded to the nearest whole pence, which will give you the price without V.A.T. If a wig costs £159.95 including V.A.T it would cost £133.29 without V.A.T.

Example 2) If the wig is advertised on the web site with an offer, then you are entitled to V.A.T relief on the offer price. If a wig is advertised at £189.95 with a 10% offer this would make the wig £170.96 saving £18.99. We then divide the offer price by 1.2 making the price without V.A.T £142.47.

How to purchase wigs without V.A.T

1) Print out the three page V.A.T relief form, fill it in along with the order form as per the instructions with them and post it to us. Your order will be processed and the wig sent out to you.

2) It is possible to order online and still claim the V.A.T relief. In order to do this, please send in the form as normal informing us that you will make and online order. On receiving the order and the completed V.A.T relief form we will process the sale without the V.A.T on the wig and refund the balance to you using the original payment method.
