Persons qualifying for VAT exemption must fill and sign the declaration form with their order.
Who Qualifies For VAT Exemption?
A person registered as disabled.
A person the medical profession considers to be chronically sick, where "chronic" means lasting a long time.
A person who is terminally ill.
Who does NOT Qualify for VAT Exemption?
Frail or elderly people who are otherwise able bodied.
Any person with injuries of a temporary nature
Any person suffering from long term back problems
What if a customer is unable to make a written declaration?
It may not always be possible for a disabled person to sign a declaration (for example, if the person is a child or unable to write). In such cases, the signature of a parent, guardian, doctor or another responsible person is acceptable on the declaration.
If you are unsure as to whether you qualify for relief from VAT we suggest you contact your local VAT office for guidance. It is an offence to make a false VAT exemption declaration.
As promised, an update of how effective I found the gel pad to be over a reasonable time/distance.
As I mentioned before I suffer from 2 prolapsed discs in my lower spine and these were causing actual pain when I was on a motorcycle for more than an hour or so.
The biggest problem was caused by the sudden impact shock when the bike hit a pothole
or dropped grid etc. and you can feel the jarring hitting the bottom of your spine.
Due to the width of the bike seat and a slight problem with the fastening strap fouling the seat lugs I had the gel pad fitted into the seat.
Over the last 2 days I covered about 500 miles on a differing range of roads and the difference with the gel pad fitted was outstanding. It eliminates most of those impacts or softens them to such a degree that they make little difference.
I would more than recommend this product to any-one who wants to make their motorcycling more comfortable and enjoyable.
