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 same material you will find in chemical warfare suits are found in the flatulence filtering underwear from Shreddies! No need to worry about those odours!
Before you try and deny it; it happens to each and every one of us and there is no stopping us from letting one rip. Even if we try and do it subtly; we can’t guarantee that no one will notice. If you’re embarrassed about your “flatulence” (gas, fart, trump – let’s get them all out of the way!) then Shreddies underwear are the perfect “fart pants” you need – yes, they do really exist!
The science behind Shreddies underwear
Yep, there’s a whole lot of science behind these underwear; believe it or not they are made from the same material that is found in chemical warfare! So if you’re worried that your gas is a weapon of mass destruction, the flatulence filtering underwear will capture the odour vapours and neutralise them, so no one will ever know!
Sandwiched between the fabrics inside Shreddies underwear is a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel; it is able to absorb a large volume of organic or inorganic molecules. Zorflex is used in many different ways; medical, defence, industrial and of course our very clever Shreddies!
Research from The American Journal of Gastroenterology (that means medicine which deals with stomach and intestine disorders) discovered that activated carbon underwear is the most effective method of eliminating flatulence odours. Shreddies went through rigorous examination by De Montfort University (right here in the UK) and they found that the fabric “was found to remove ethyl mercaptan and sulphide so effectively that it can filter odours 200 times the strength of the average flatus emission”. In other words, no matter how bad your gas is; Shreddies will eliminate it completely.
Where protection to a huge range of chemical, biological or nuclear agents is required; Zorflex is used for instance in protective clothing and decontamination wipes. It’s the most effective protection on the clothing market today. Why? Because it is sweat resistant, antimicrobial, lightweight, breathable, extremely comfortable, liquid repellent and flame retardant – it’s exactly what you will find in your fantastic flatulence filtering underwear.
The motto of Shreddies is “Fart with confidence” and the fabulous underwear will do just that.
Who should wear Shreddies?
although it may seem a humorous subject and it’s your partner who is forcing you to wear the flatulence filtering underwear to cover your PDPs (post-digestive particulates); there is a seriousness that comes with Shreddies underwear, and those who suffer with excessive flatulence know that it can take a toll on their social lives.
For those who endure problems such as:
- IBS - irritable bowel syndrome
- Gastritis - inflammation of the stomach lining
- Crohn’s disease - long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system
- Dyspepsia – indigestion
- Colitis – inflammation of the inner lining of the colon
- Food intolerances – coeliac, lactose intolerance
May experience excessive flatulence; for those people they will know the difficulties of participating in social events. Feelings of anxiety and paranoia only create chemical changes which can affect your digestive system, and if you’re already experiencing excessive flatulence that is the last thing you want to happen! Shreddies provide the assurance and comfort you need, and because they look just like your ordinary boxer shorts, no one will even know that you are wearing them – allowing you to “fart with confidence”.
The average person passes wind 14 times DAILY; so everybody should own at least one pair of these magnificent and clever pants – just for added assurance. If you suffer with digestive or gastric disorders and often find yourself in that uncomfortable situation that you need to let one go; could be a first date, business meeting or even jammed together in a lift – Shreddies are here for you.
Getting the most out of your Shreddies underwear
Now, as magical Shreddies seem - they don’t perform miracles; if gas passes through the carbon filter all odours will be eliminated. You must take into consideration on how you stand or sit when you feel like you are about pass wind. So when you’re standing or sitting, ensure that there are no gaps around the waistband or leg openings and your underwear is firmly against the skin. This will avoid flatulence from escaping around the filter.
For added assurance, stand or sit with your legs together and try to let the wind escape slowly (we know sometimes you may be caught off guard!), ensuring your legs are together will make sure that the flatulence escapes through the rear panel so that all odours are removed.
How to care for your Shreddies
The Zorflex that is embedded into the flatulence filtering underwear has a life of 2 – 3 years when cared for properly; so ensure that you only wash your Shreddies underwear with only soda crystals at either 40˚ or by hand. Dry them on a medium heat or over a medium heated radiator.
Please do not use – Fabric Softener, Soap or Detergents, these products will clog up the carbon filter and stop them working immediately. Please only use a large scoop of Soda Crystals in each wash.
