Since 2022, there is a new VAT regulation for hairpieces and wigs in Belgium. If the wig or hairpiece is reimbursed by the compulsory health insurance in Belgium and if it can be regarded as a medical device, the lower VAT rate of 6% may apply. This reduced rate only applies if certain conditions are met:
- There is a valid prescription from the attending physician (for baldness due to radiotherapy or chemotherapy) or from the dermatologist (for baldness of more than thirty percent due to skin conditions such as alopecia areata or cicatricial alopecia). Please note: the prescription must still be valid and may not be older than three months!
- The reduced rate is only valid for persons who live and are insured in Belgium.
If you meet these conditions, you can order your hairwork or wig online at the reduced VAT rate of 6%. Because all our articles and products are standard priced with a VAT rate of 21%, we have created a separate page where you can fill in your details and upload your valid doctor's prescription. After we have checked your details, we will send you a unique code that you can use to order the products at the reduced rate.
If you want to order accessories, small hairpieces or care products, the rate of 21% applies.
