Buy direct from Ireland’s adjustable bed experts
and claim back the VAT

If you live in Ireland and have a disability, you may be able to claim back the Value-Added Tax (VAT) on your new electrically adjustable bed. In some cases people who pay for aids and appliances that are for the exclusive use of a person with a disability can also claim the VAT back. People with both physical and mental disabilities may be eligible for these VAT refunds.

Rules

Please see underneath for the rules as laid out on citizensinformation.ie. You can claim a VAT refund on aids and appliances that help you carry out daily activities at home or work.

To claim a VAT refund you must:

  • Live in Ireland
  • Have a disability
  • Need the aid or appliance to help with daily activities
  • You may need to produce medical evidence of your disability
  • The aid or appliance must be owned by and for the exclusive use of the person with the disability. If the VAT refund is being sought by a person other than the user of the aid or appliance, the Revenue Commissioners may ask for evidence that the aid is solely owned by and is for the sole use of the person with the disability. In this case, these goods must not be supplied in the course of a business run by the purchaser of the goods

VAT refunds are not allowed on:

  • Services for people with disabilities
  • Rented aids and appliances
