VAT Relief On Wigs

Can I claim back VAT on Wigs?

You can claim the VAT back on your wig purchase (currently at 20%) if you have alopecia, are receiving chemotherapy, chronically sick or have a disabling condition. It does not matter how many wigs you purchase, you still have the right to claim back the VAT on each wig that you buy. If you are unsure if you can claim back the VAT, please contact your doctor for clarification. For additional advice, please view the  HMRC ‘Helpline’ website or call on 0300 123 1073, Option 1 for assistance.

Making a false declaration to the HMRC is fraudulent and is to be avoided at all costs!

What products can I claim on?

HMRC have informed us that VAT refunds can only be considered on purchases of wigs, qualifying hairpieces and services. VAT cannot be reclaimed for any accessories (including scarves, turbans, caps) or any aftercare products (including shampoo, conditioner, styling brushes or products). These purchases that include VAT must be made separately from your qualifying VAT free wig purchases.

How much is VAT relief?

VAT at the current rate – 20%

The amount of the VAT relief can be confusing, so please remember that it is the amount of VAT that you have paid (charged at 20% on the price of your wig) and it is this amount that will be refunded and not a 20% discount. It can be quite difficult to explain but I will try to show you in the following example:

If you buy a wig from Hairlucinations 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.
