    I cannot see anything wrong with the link, where does it mention any of the frauds that you talk of?

    Or maybe you are just trying to cause trouble? if so why?

    George
    Why do you say that I am trying to cause trouble????
    This is a serious subject and I thought that you may know more about it.
    It was on Radio 4 this week about fraudulent claims for VAT relief for motor vehicles for disabled people.
    They were saying that there is no limit to the amount of vehicles that a disabled person may buy and that some are reselling to dealers over and over again.
    I ask why am I causing trouble?????

    I thought that as you seem to read a lot and are able to pull up information on nearly everything, that you may be able to help people with a little information on the subject.
    As I said on the previous post "no pun intended".
    I apologies if it came out wrong but I think that you took it wrong.
    George, we must put our past arguments behind us.
    I also thought that it would be of interest to you as it is a serious subject

    :Eek!: It's rather Ironic that this should come up at this moment in time. I have just been reading the local Village newspaper. There is an International Disabled Sportsman and one or two of his disabled friends under investigation for buying and selling on at a profit various high spec Motors that were purchased under the Disabled VAT scheme. :Eek!:

    If I may add to this
    WHY do the disabled get VAT relief on Motorhomes?
    this is not intended as a poke at the disabled, I firmly belive they should get ans deserve all the help they can get for every day living, but it puzzels me why a Motorhome falls into this catagory, it appears it is a loophole designed for the get rich quick brigade, and in my opinion it wants either closing or regulating,
    If it is claimed that a MH is reqd for an every day vehicle and vat relief will be forth coming then say one purhase every 3 years or so would seem a reasonable scheme
    Shoot me down whu dont Ya

    Well,
    I against my better judgement, I tried to talk along with George and tried to include him in my posts. Maybe I tried too hard as I wanted to put the bad feelings from Wild camping when George and his mates got banned behind us.
    I now wish that I did not bother and again I am left with the feeling of dare I post, is it worth it??
    Where is the fun in that??

    :BigGrin: I do agree with all you say Geo. But perhaps Paul (ukrv) would be best answering this? He has been there and done that. It is his home. :Wink:

    Geo, that is the type of post that I wanted, thanks mate.
    I was interested as when I recently purchased my m/h i went along to Lazy Days and they tried their best to get me to find a disabled person within my family so that I could buy from them.
    They told me that any little disability would do, when in fact the disabled person has to be confined to a wheel chair (I think).
    Maybe some one could tell us more as this is all I wanted.

    Now George I will take a chance and ask again.

    Well, when I was looking for a M/H a few months ago, the salesman at Lazy Days told me that if I had a family member with a blue badge window sticker then I could buy a new M/H vat free.
    He said that any disability would do including a breathing disability and including a distant relative.
    On looking on web sites I concluded that the disability had to be at least wheelchair bound and possible bed bound and be a close family member.
    I could have found a distant relative but not wheel chair bound and I thought it too much of a chance to take, therefore I did not buy from them.
    Had I done so I think that the vat man would have probably have come after me at a later date.
    If this is correct, then maybe other members should be aware of the tactics that some dealers will use to get a sale.
    Thanks
