Our helpful ‘VAT Aspects’ page addresses all of the most common questions concerning the zero rating of automobility vehicles
Dorset (PRUnderground) July 23rd, 2012
Buying a vehicle is always a major investment requiring careful consideration, and this is even more so the case when looking to purchase mobility cars. If you or a loved one is a wheelchair user, however, the benefits of doing so are enormous and any initial cost can often be offset by the various allowances and exemptions that come with owning a converted vehicle; one of the most important of these is the fact that, in the vast majority of cases, VAT is not payable.
Our helpful ‘VAT Aspects’ page, which can be found on the ‘Hints – Tips & More’ section of our website, addresses all of the most common questions concerning this zero rating. As you will see from clicking here, only conversions used for business purposes or which can seat over 12 passengers qualify for Value Added Tax. The page also details how owners of these cars can also take advantage of exempted servicing, repairs and maintenance.
If you do have a strict budget to stick to and are worrying about the financial feasibility of buying a mobility vehicle, you may be surprised to learn just how much you could save when going through Brotherwood Automobility. As well as a great selection of new models, you will be happy to know that all of our top quality used wheelchair cars are also not subject to VAT fees.
