Re: [BCAB] Question regarding Apple I phone and VAT exemption for blind person david.boden@nottscc.gov.uk 21 Nov 2012 11:43 GMT

As has been suggested, I think it probably depends on which store you
visit and the member of staff you find.

However, I believe the phraseology of the request may well be relevant.

As far as I understand the issue, there is no VAT exemption available but
that Apple stores are willing to deduct the VAT component of the price for
V I customers at a loss to the company.

My husband and I were told by Apple that there is no VAT exemption
available. My husband also tried the Bullring store in Birmingham and was
told the same thing there.

Hi Robin

This seems to be a very grey area.  Some say you can get VAT exemption,
and others not.  Indeed, I saw someone post to a different list, to which
I am not subscribed, stating they had contacted Apple officially, and was
told categorically that no VAT exemption is permitted on any product.  I
think it seems to depend on where you shop, and who you get on the day.

Good luck.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Hi list

I recall some messages confirming that VAT would not be charged for Apple
products with VO for blind purchasers.

As I am thinking of making the switch to an I phone I called the Apple
store in Westfield White City to check this.

The staff member said all Apple products with VO were VAT exempt for blind
and VI persons apart from the I phone!! I was surprised but wanted to
check with the list before challenging this.

Has anyone purchased an I phone recently and managed to get VAT exempted
by the Apple store?

Regards

Robin
