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?
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.So why mention my name in your post, why would I be interested?
Yes John, they mentioned that also on Radio 4It'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.
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.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
Geo, that is the type of post that I wanted, thanks mate.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,

Now George I will take a chance and ask again.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.
My question isWell, 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.
oooh! I know, I know...!!Hi George I am trying to get my head around your method of answering others posts,
you appear to like straight forward questions and i suspect that logic plays a big part in your thinking, to help me make a judgement
here is a question for you
you are offered for sale either of two identical pocket waches,, they are both the same price and you must buy one of them
one does not work at all, and the other gains 5 min's a day
which one are you going to buy and why
There are two seperate issues here, one is the VAT free element and the other is the Motobility scheme.My question is
Does the disabled person have to be at least wheelchair bound, and how close a relative?
I was hoping for an answer from GT but he answered with a question, that in it's self tells me all i need to knowWhich watch would you go for Geo?
