Stop taxing hearing aids

We are calling on the government to stop taxing hearing aids

Home / Member support and guidance / Campaigns / Stop taxing hearing aids

As a member of the Hearing Loss and Deafness Alliance, we fully support the call to stop taxing hearing aids.

Current legislation means that 20% VAT is applied to hearing aids. This tax on people with hearing loss:

  • Pre-dates modern disability discrimination legislation in the UK and is unjust
  • Fails to recognise the evidence on the impacts of hearing loss and the benefits of hearing aids.

That is why it is time to treat people with hearing loss fairly and zero-rate hearing aids.

Learn more about the case for change in our evidence-based submission to HM Treasury.
