VAT Free musical instrument assisted purchase scheme
what is it?
The Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AKA the AIPS) enables pupils at local authority and academy schools to purchase instruments without paying VAT on the purchase.
how does it work?
The rules of the AIPS say that the purchase order must be made with the school or academy where your child is educated. The school then place the order with us as the supplier. You pay the school directly at the discounted VAT free rate.
