VAT Relief on Wigs - Who is eligible?

Some wear wigs simply to switch up their look, some out of necessity and some do it for both reasons.

Who is eligible?

If you live in the UK and fall into the category of wearing wigs out of necessity, you may be interested to know that you may be eligible to get 20% off the prices that you see in our store.

The government states that if you have a medical condition that causes hair loss, be that temporary, as in because of cancer treatment, or long term as with alopecia, you are entitled to VAT relief on wigs. At the moment VAT is 20%. In practical terms, what this means is that if you see a wig that costs £49.99, you are entitled to pay just £39.99. You save £10.

Obviously, a GP needs to certify your medical condition and they will issue you with an exemption certificate. Once you are GP approved, it's rather simple.

How do I claim the 20% refund?

Place your order. You will be charged the normal price. Complete and send us the declaration form (which you can download here, there's not much to it) and we will immediately refund you the difference.

The refund needs to take place at the time of purchase, so we can't back date it. You will still earn points and your statutory rights are not effected.
