If you wish to Buy on HP it is possible.

I don't know if Mobility cover such vehicles.

On of the dealers may be able to advise.

If you are on the higher mobility allowance it certainly covers the road tax.

Red face I do not thinkit is possible if the vehicle has VAT

If the is a base vehicle on a commercial chassis.. Like campers then VAT is due and Motability will not do that unless it is a wheelchair converted vehicle which allows them to re claim the vat.

You can have the disabled road tax off a camper using the DLA 404 exemption form providing the vehicle is registered disabled.

I have an RV which is a heavy private goods and the road tax is cheaper than my 1.8 Hyundia car... So I tax the car and pay the tax on the RV.

Remember there might be VAT exemption on New or Second hand.. Yes second hand are allowed .. See HMC leaflets.. It is a harder job to get some dealers to apply the removal of VAT at source .. You cannot reclaim it after... There are rules..if you want more detailed info p.m. me. Vat at 20% on the margin (profit) can be a lot of money on a
30k plus vehicle. On imported second hand yanks it can be taken off the whole advertised price not the margin.

But best ask Motability operations for the skinny on it.

No problem with us, rather give it to the customer than the Revenue!

Nice to see a dealer Peter that will allow the vat rules to be applied to those that comply with the rules.

Not every dealer will bother.. When it can make the difference to a disabled person if he or she so buys.

Well done

Bob

We don't deal with mobility finance as such, but we offer VAT free to qualified persons who can either arrange their own finance or use our facilities.

Bank loan, personal loan, other HP company, makes no difference to us as long as we get paid !
