VAT Back on Equipment

RECLAIM VAT ON TOYS & EQUIPMENT – SOME DETAILS.

NOTE NEW FORM 61A SINCE AUGUST 2018 – REQUIRES BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS – this form is available on the Revenue Website (if you use the old form it will be sent back to you

& will delay your repayment)

CLAIMS CAN BE MADE RETROSPECTIVELY UP TO 4 YEARS – so keep all receipts

If you claim online – put in your first VAT number & then just upload all the receipts – this section of the online application will be ‘fixed’ for multiple receipts next year, the section is aware of the problem

POINTS TO REMEMBER:

Decisions are made on a case by case basis but rule of thumb is that the item Must Be for the exclusive use of person with DS

An OT/SLT letter supporting the purchase is not essential to have with claim but helps or may be requested later if audited

ENSURE: Your receipt is a FULL VAT Receipt, with supplies VAT number clearly stated & that it has your name on it and that it says PAID IN FULL

*If your purchase if from the USA and duty was paid on it you can reclaim this.

If your purchase is not subject to Irish VAT then you will not be able to claim.

Before claiming make sure your purchase is actually subject to VAT – not all items are

When we rang Revenue we explained what NUMICON is & they said that as long as the item was for the sole use of the child and VAT was charged then the VAT would most likely be repaid.
