VAT Guidance on Mastectomy Products

If you are in the UK and have undergone a Mastectomy, Lumpectomy, or other qualifying surgery, or have such surgery planned, you are entitled to not pay VAT on Mastectomy bras purchased for your own use.

All the prices on our website already come without VAT having been added (i.e. NET of VAT).  However, to be entitled to the VAT free price, you need to complete a simple online Declaration Form with information required by HMRC. 

If you are unsure whether you are eligible or not to this VAT exemption, you can check on HMRC’s website HMRC Guidance VAT Notice 701/7. You can also call HMRC’s helpline on 0845 010 9000.

Once you complete an order which includes a Mastectomy Bra that is free of VAT, you will receive an automated email with instructions and a link to the electronic declaration form. This helpful process avoids the need for the Declaration to be printed off and posted to us.

If you are at all unsure what you need to do or have any other queries, then please email us at customerservice@brashoponline.co.uk or call us FREE on 0800 6126098.

Please note: as VAT will not have been charged on the price you have paid for an eligible Mastectomy Bra, we are only able to process and ship the order once the Declaration of eligibility has been received.
