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.
