If you are buying a wig out of necessity due to a medical condition such as Alopecia, or treatments such as Chemotherapy then you are entitled to VAT exemption. This should apply to all retailers online but in many cases you will need to double check with each individual retailer. In some cases, a retailer may not be VAT registered, and therefore may chose not to adjust the price of the Wig as they don’t pay VAT in the first place.
VAT exception is only applicable for full head wigs, and not for any accessories etc.
In the case of our shop, our eCommerce facility does not have the ability to zero rate your VAT exempt wigs, but we can do this through mail order or in our retail studio in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.
In order to receive VAT exemption, you will need to fully compete our VAT form and return it to us by post before we can authorise the VAT reduction.
Please note that this is strictly for people with a medical condition that has been confirmed by a GP and attempting to avoid paying the VAT fraudulently would be illegal.
If you do have a confirmed medical condition and would like to apply for VAT exemption, then you can access or forms below.
Please return your forms by post or fax
Fax to (01945) 464444
