VAT Free information
VAT Exemption/Relief Explained
VAT Exemption provides a valuable benefit for individuals who are chronically sick or disabled. It allows them to purchase eligible items at a 0% VAT rate, thus reducing the cost of these essential items. The process of claiming VAT exemption is made simple, especially when shopping online, as our online store is designed to facilitate the process with a series of straightforward questions that can be answered in the comfort of one’s own home.
Eligibility for VAT Relief
The government has outlined the criteria for eligibility for VAT relief, which include:
- Charities that provide their charity number. Individuals who are considered “chronically sick or disabled” as defined by:
- Having a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and substantial impact on their ability to carry out everyday activities. Having a condition that is medically treated as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes. Being terminally ill.
It’s important to note that VAT exemption does NOT apply to individuals who are only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as those with a broken limb, or frail elderly persons who are otherwise able-bodied.
Proof of Disability
In order to be exempt from VAT, the government requires a simple declaration of the nature of one’s disability at the time of ordering. No proof of the disability needs to be provided to any party. All that is required is the name, address, and disability of the person the item is for, as well as information about their chronic sickness or disability.
VAT Exemption is only applicable to certain items that have been designed specifically for use by individuals who are chronically sick or disabled. These items include, but are not limited to: bathing aids, mobility aids, toileting aids, continence products, and other daily living aids.
The Kegel8 menstrual or period cup allows for more time between emptying, especially on light days. Using a menstrual cup prevents the need to carry extra pads or tampons, which many women find burdensome and even embarrassing. Unlike tampons, the menstrual cup can be inserted around the time of an expected period, to avoid first-day leakage. Cheaper than using tampons or pads it is estimated that a menstrual cup can save £1177 over 10 years! Use reduces irritation and vaginal dryness AND less mess and odour. Easy to remove, this menstrual cup is leak free while sleeping and super soft for comfort and security.
I‚Äôve just done my 1st cycle using a cup.
I‚Äôve never felt as clean,never used anything as simple/comfortable.
I generally have a 4day bleed day two being the heaviest,with tampons I always leaked at some point.
With the cup, No leaks unless it wasn‚Äôt ‚Äòin‚Äô correctly you can feel it like you can a tampon,and feel wet. But it still gathered some fluid, I‚Äôve slept using it, there been no period smell,no clots, no feeling oh no I‚Äôve flooded!
And strangely no cramps! At all!
Using the cup, my experience I find that to insert the cup you need to crouch more than you do for a tampon. To remove crouch again use two fingers to pinch the base of the cup, then bear down. Easy as. I‚Äôm 34 years old and haven‚Äôt given birth. Using size A.
So far so good, easy to use, but carry a bottle of water in the loo with you to rinse it before reinserting.
With this cup and camping, my sanitary waste reduced by 95% (I keep the odd pad around), and I'm grateful.
The reasons why the cup doesn't get five stars is that I had to trim off the wick (it irritated my vagina), and the softness of the silicone means that it can work itself out of the canal whilst you're doing a bowel movement. Also, around the fourth day, when my period is relatively light, it's slightly more difficult to fish out with fingers (again, because I had to cut the irritating stem).
That being said, I do appreciate the freedom that this cup gave me whilst camping. I was able to go about my business for six hours and not have to worry about changing tampons or pads with the dreaded bleed through. And I've saved so much space in my toiletry bag. Also, I appreciated the softness of the material, because I've used other cups with harder, thicker material that haven't been as comfortable.
Shame about the irritant tab though.
Environmentally friendly and bank-balance friendly. Works for me!
This cup is just as good as moon cup (which I had before and sadly lost it) but cheaper. Love the little pouch it comes with too. Awesome, would recommend!
I have size A. I have given birth, but it was via C-section with no pushing involved at all, so everything ‚Äòdown there‚Äô stayed intact (woo hoo!). I‚Äôm 34 and average height and build, not overweight but absolutely not skinny. My pelvic floor is strong, I have no signs of any weaknesses down there so I thought the size A would be fine for me, happy to report, it is! In fact, it‚Äôs changed my bloody life. Yes, that‚Äôs right, life changing. I didn‚Äôt know how much I hated tampons until I started using a menstrual cup. Your period can feel pretty gross but using this cup everything feels clean as a whistle. It took a bit of getting used to getting it ‚Äòin‚Äô ‚Äì I use the C fold technique (google it if you‚Äôre not sure!). You might want to rinse it with a bit of water first to make it easier to insert. Once inserted, you can have a feel to make sure the sides have popped open, if not you can give it a little prod wherever needed to get it opened up fully. Unbelievably you can‚Äôt feel it in there, like, AT ALL. If you can, it‚Äôs either not inserted properly (could be tilted maybe?) or it‚Äôs not in far enough‚Ä¶so maybe give it a bit of a push at the stem so it goes in a little further.
I left mine the first time for around 8 hours and when I removed it in was only about a quarter full. The next time I left it 12 hours and it was less than half full, bloody marvellous. My periods are light and only last around 3 days but based on the amount this cup held over 12 hours, I‚Äôd say even if you have quite heavy periods, you‚Äôre going to get at least 6-8 hours protection before you need to remove and empty your cup. The cup removes easily with a pull of the stem, just make sure you‚Äôre relaxed (natural reaction is to tense up). The best thing about using a menstrual cup for me is not needing to remove it for 12 whole hours. You can go the loo (even a number 2 won‚Äôt dislodge this bad boy ‚Äì sorry I know that‚Äôs too much info), shower, go swimming or bathe without that horrible damp string making everything feel minging down there afterwards. Also, no more night time leaks or waking up faced with a scene from a Stephen King novel. Because it‚Äôs body safe I wear mine at night in the couple of days before my period starts to be safe, you can‚Äôt do that with tampons obviously. Really chuffed not to have to spend good gin money on tampons anymore too. I‚Äôm converted for life, it‚Äôs fab!
