Squease and VAT relief

Based in the United Kingdom?

When you buy Squease in our webshop, the following questions are asked during the checkout process.

Depending upon the answers the VAT is automatically removed before payment. If you are purchasing offline then you need to fill out a VAT Relief Form which you can scan and email to us.

You won’t have to pay VAT if the user of the Squease pressure vest is

  • using the Squease vest for personal or domestic use and

  • classified as chronically sick or disabled

HMRC defines a person as ‘chronically sick or disabled’ if he/she is a person:

  • with a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities

  • with a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes

  • Autism and ADHD would be defined as chronic conditions.

Please note!

Full details for how Squease is eligible for VAT relief is available here.  Please note there are penalties for making a false declaration and Squease reserves the right not to supply the goods at Zero VAT if further information is required. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are eligible to receive goods zero-rated for VAT, you should contact the National Advice Service on +44 (0) 845 010 9000.

From outside UK?

VAT is not charged to customers outside of UK however all duties and local taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. However you can check to see if we have a local reseller who can supply you directly. Ordering from our resellers usually works out cheaper than ordering direct from us when you account for both customs and delivery. No reseller listed in your country? Then email us and we will try to help out.
