A big additional factor to the end user pricing of equipment is the VAT. In some countries this sales tax is 25% or even higher. In Germany this tax, called “Mehrwertsteuer”, is 19% high. There are some products which qualify for reduced tax rates. Often products, which help to cover basic needs, are acknowledged for lower tax rates. In Germany the lower tax rate is 7% high. Some countries, e.g. France, agree that technical aids are part of the basic needs of disabled people. Other countries list products, like Video Magnifiers, that qualify for lower tax rates. Unfortunately, in some countries there are no tax reductions for technical aids.
It is possible to apply for reduced VAT. Your local tax office can provide you with information about the proceedings. Sometimes there is a special VAT privilege for businesses owned and managed by a handicapped person, or nonprofit organizations. These businesses can sell all their products to users at a reduced tax rate.
