  • We are experts in this field and in a wide range of adaptations to ensure that your home is more comfortable and functional to suit your changing needs.

VAT Relief

VAT is not charged on certain services provided to disabled people, including some building work to adapt a disabled person’s home. Goods and services on which you don’t have to pay VAT are often referred to as ‘zero-rated’ or ‘eligible for VAT relief’. The rule about VAT relief for disabled people is complex.

Not everything that is supplied to disabled people is zero-rated for VAT. Appeel are able to provide additional guidance on VAT Relief following our initial visit to discuss your requirements.

Bathroom Installations

Whilst many people are able to use a standard bathroom there are times when people may need their bathroom adapting to enable them to continue living independently.

When designing an adapted bathroom we consider the user’s needs, the location of the bathroom and the requirements of other users.
