VAT on Spectacles

HM Revenue and Customs deem part of the full retail cost of a pair of spectacles to be a dispensing fee which is exempt of VAT and then part of the full retail cost to be directly related to the goods themselves. This makes the VAT treatment of glasses rather complicated!

In order to ensure that you are completely aware of all of the costs associated with your glasses we will provide you with a print out of a full breakdown of the costs of your glasses and the associated VAT which is included prior to you confirming your order.
