VAT free for special needs

We all know the benefits of exercise in maintaining health and for rehabilitation, especially cardiovascular exercise that raises your heart rate and increases your endurance. Cycling is the perfect way to get exercise without putting excessive strain on joints and bones. Recumbent trikes in particular enable almost everyone to get around without strain on hands, necks or backsides. Tandems are a great solution for the partially sighted or for riders with reduced control.

Many of our bikes and trikes can be adapted for people with special needs, and if you are chronically sick or have a disabling condition then you can buy a bike without paying VAT. The process is simple, you just have to sign a form and describe your condition. If you have any doubt about your eligability the HMRC guide is here.
