VAT Relief Information

The Melrose addresses pressure management issues and provides adaptable support for neurological and postural conditions. This chair provides carers with a number of options to enable regular repositioning of users to redistribute pressure and support pressure care management:

An in-built tilt in space movement is operated from the push handle allowing the chair to be gently reclined in a range of positions maintaining a constant back angle.

The backrest and leg rest can be separately adjusted providing a further range of back and leg angle combinations to support improved posture and pressure management. Couple this to the angle and height adjustable footplates and this makes the Melrose Repose's most versatile pressure management porter chair.

The Melrose combines Tilt in Space, Independent Recline, Independent Leg Rest, Footplate and Seat Depth actions with a range of seat and back cushion options to offer an extensive range of postural and pressure management positions.

Tilt in space movement

Using the left hand lever on the push handle the chair can be gently reclined in a range of positions maintaining a constant back angle. The back locks into position when the lever is released. The push handle comes with rubber grips.

Independent backrest recline

Using the right hand lever on the push handle the backrest can be reclined independently providing a range of back angles. The back locks into position when the lever is released. Enhanced posture and pressure management options are available by combining this movement with the leg rest and footplate adjustment.

Independent leg rest movement

The leg rest angle can be changed independently of the backrest and footplate movements to provide additional posture and pressure management options. Simply pull the lever on the side of the chair and this will release the leg rest so that you can adjust to the required angle for the users comfort, including a negative leg rest angle A. The leg rest locks when the lever is raised. The leg rest is contoured, with padding on either side to support the legs splaying over the side.

Optional footplates

The Melrose has a choice of adjustable footplates that further extend the range of posture and pressure management options, particularly when combined with the leg rest and backrest movements.

Interchangeable back cushions

The interchangeable back cushions can be replaced with five other back options, designed to meet a range of needs.

Interchangeable seat cushions

Seat and back cushions are upholstered in a four-way stretch, vapour permeable fabric to aid pressure care. The fabric is washable at 95°C and available in a range of colours. Choose from a range of interchangeable pressure seat cushion options to meet the specific needs of the user.

Seat depth movement

The seat depth can be adjusted by using a simple mechanism under the seat.

Seat width adjustment

The seat width can be adjusted by removing and interchanging the arm pads to fit the seat to the user. There are two size of arm pads that allow the seat depth to be adjusted. 

The weight limit of the Melrose is 25 stones.

VAT relief on products and services for disabled people

VAT is a tax that you pay as a consumer when you buy goods and services in the European Union (EU), including the United Kingdom. In the UK the standard rate for VAT is 20 per cent.

Disabled people don't have to pay VAT when they buy equipment that has been designed solely for disabled people, or on the adaptation of equipment so they can use it.

Also, VAT is not charged on certain services provided to disabled people, including some building work to adapt a disabled person's home and the hire of disability equipment like wheelchairs.

Goods and services on which you don't have to pay VAT are often referred to as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief'. In other words, the rate of VAT that is charged on them is zero.

The rules about VAT reliefs for disabled people are complex. Not everything that is supplied to disabled people is zero-rated for VAT.

Who is eligible for VAT relief

VAT law states that you must be 'chronically sick or disabled' to qualify for VAT relief.

A person is 'chronically sick or disabled' if they:

  • Have a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and severe effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities
  • Have a condition that doctors treat as a chronic sickness (like diabetes, for example) or are terminally ill

A person with a temporary injury like a broken leg would not qualify, nor would a frail older person who was otherwise well and non-disabled.

A product or service must also be supplied for the 'personal or domestic use' of a chronically sick or disabled person to qualify for zero-rating. Things not covered by this include:

  • Products and services used for business purposes
  • Products made widely available for a group of people to use
  • Products and services supplied to people who are staying or living in a hospital or nursing home, as part of their medical or surgical treatment or with any form of care

Products that are eligible for VAT relief

Some examples of products that are zero-rated for VAT are:

  • Wheelchairs
  • Some medical and surgical appliances - like artificial limbs, for example electrically or mechanically adjustable beds chair or stair lifts
  • Computer software or hardware designed specifically for disabled people
  • Gadgets and devices that are designed solely to make everyday tasks easier for disabled people, like kettle tippers vehicles that have been adapted for use by a disabled wheelchair or stretcher user

Services that are eligible for VAT relief

Services that are eligible for zero-rating include:

  • The servicing, maintenance and installation of disability equipment
  • Adaptation work on equipment or appliances so a disabled person can use them
  • Some building alterations to a disabled person's home
  • The hire of qualifying disability equipment

Motor vehicles

If you are a wheelchair or stretcher user, you should not have to pay VAT when you buy a motor vehicle that has been substantially and permanently adapted for your personal use. A wheelchair user is defined as anyone who has to use a wheelchair - powered or manual - in order to be mobile.

Any adaptation work that is done on an unadapted vehicle to make it suitable for a disabled person's condition, whether or not that person is a wheelchair user, is also eligible for zero-rating. However, there is no VAT relief on the purchase of an unadapted vehicle.

For more information, read the notice 'Motor vehicles for disabled people' on the HM Revenue & Customs website.

Equipment How VAT reliefs work

Before you pay for any product or service, check that it qualifies for zero-rating and that the supplier is registered for VAT.

When you buy a zero-rated product or service, you may have to sign a form declaring that you have a chronic illness or disability and what it is. You must also declare that the product or service is for your own 'personal or domestic use'. The supplier should have copies of this form.

You can then buy the product or service at a price that excludes VAT. You don't have to pay VAT and then reclaim it from the government - it will be taken off the purchase price before you pay.

You can find an example of the declaration form in the 'VAT reliefs for disabled people' notice on the HM Revenue & Customs website.
