Can I claim back VAT on wigs?
You can claim the VAT back on your wig purchase (currently 20%) if you have alopecia, are receiving chemotherapy, chronically sick or have a disabling condition. It does not matter how many wigs you purchase, you still have the right to claim the VAT on each wig that you buy. If you are unsure if you can claim back the VAT, please contact your doctor for clarification.
What products can I claim on?
HMRC have informed us that VAT refunds can only be considered on purchases of wigs and qualifying hairpieces. VAT cannot be reclaimed for any accessories (including scarves, turbans or caps) or any aftercare products (including shampoo, conditioner, styling brushes or products).
