Assisted Purchase Scheme
Thanks to a long running government scheme, young players receiving music tuitions at state schools are able to purchase instruments and accessories via their county or school with the VAT deducted. Providing your county participates in the scheme and your child qualifies, all that is required to take part in the scheme is the relevant signed form from your child’s teacher, and written approval from your school sent to us prior to your visit. They can send it via email at email@example.com or fax to 029 20 25 70 34. If in doubt please call us on 029 20 22 77 61. A sale cannot be made without the relevant forms completed.
The VAT will be deducted from the total price of your purchase, and our invoice will be sent directly to your school or county together with your form and cheque (although some counties now take card payments). Instruments over £800 may be taken on approval, with all the paperwork to be completed at the end of the trying out period (some counties charge an administration fee).
PLEASE NOTE: The scheme is only relevant to new instruments. Instruments that we sell on commission, as well as instruments in the antique scheme are not eligible for purchase through the assisted purchase scheme. Please inform us that you wish to use the assisted purchase scheme upon arrival so we can show you the correct instruments.
