If you buy a wig at £100 then this is made up of the cost of the wig £83.33 plus VAT at the standard rate of 20% (£16.67) and this brings the total to £100. This means that £16.67 will be refunded to you. It is not calculated by offering you a 20% discount from the purchase price of £100 which would be £20.00
This is applicable to UK & European clients who wear wigs for medical reasons only. Clients that wear wigs due to Alopecia, chemotherapy treatment, or any other medical condition that causes hair loss and is confirmed by a GP, are classed as necessity wearers. If you fall under this category, you are entitled to receive the VAT off the cost of your wig or piece.
Exemption on VAT is available whether you purchase from mail order or over the internet. Mail order or internet orders will require a complete VAT Exemption form to be sent to us, via the post after confirming you are keeping the goods, or you can submit your details by entering them in the boxes below and then click submit.
