Instrument Purchase Information

Pupils are encouraged to purchase their own instrument where possible and Warwickshire Music is now able to provide guidance on instrument purchase. 

Buying an instrument through your school

If a school sells musical instruments to its own pupils, no VAT is due if the following conditions are met:

  • the sale is made in class to its own local authority pupils
  • the musical instrument is sold at or below the cost to the school
  • the musical instrument is closely related to the education being provided as part of the normal school curriculum
  • the musical instrument is required for regular classroom use
