How Will The VAT Be Refunded?

When purchasing the goods from our website, www.healthandcare.co.uk, the full amount including VAT will be charged. Please complete and return the VAT Relief form to us. As soon as we receive the form, we will process the information, and a refund of the 15% VAT that you have been charged will be automatically refunded to your account. This is normally processed within 3 business days.

If you have any queries about the refund, or the amount to be refunded, please contact our Customer Care Team on 0207 821 0855. They will be happy to assist you with any queries or questions you may have.

How Much Will Be Refunded?

The full 15% VAT will be refunded on the item, subject to a completed and eligible VAT Relief Form.

The refund will be calculated as follows:

Example 1 : An item is £115 on our website (inclusive of VAT). This is the purchase price for that item.

This £115 is calculated as the price of the item exclusive of VAT (£100.00) plus 15% VAT, bringing the VAT inclusive total of the item to £115.

Once we receive your VAT Relief Form, we will refund you the difference between the price exclusive of VAT, and the price inclusive of VAT:

£115.00 - £100.00 = £15.00

We will therefore refund £15.00 (the 15% VAT that was paid on the item) to your account.

Example 2 : An item is £100 on our website (inclusive of VAT). This is the purchase price for that item.

This £100 is calculated as the price of the item exclusive of VAT (£86.96) plus 15% VAT, bringing the VAT inclusive total of the item to £100.

Once we receive your VAT Relief Form, we will refund you the difference between the price exclusive of VAT, and the price inclusive of VAT:

£100.00 - £86.96 = £13.04

We will therefore refund £13.04 (the 15% VAT that was paid on the item) to your account.
