Did you know that Santa is entitled to a VAT refund on specific toys that he delivers to children with special needs?
The most common items on Santa’s list are
  • IPads & tablets
  • Computers
  • Apps (communication, speech, etc.)
  • OT. Toys
  • Eating and drinking aids
  • Mobility Aids
  • Communication aids
  • Specific footwear

The rule for Santa is that the toy must be specifically for your child and assist them in some way for communication or independent living. To strengthen Santa’s application, then, a letter from a therapist/professional/doctor recommending the items makes a huge difference.

Before you ask Santa for this item, you can contact Revenue to check if you can reclaim the VAT and they will inform you of the steps. Santa will also need a specific VAT refund form which you can download on the revenue website.

I hope Santa is kind to all our families and I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a great Christmas.

Merry Christmas Everyone,
