Purchase Scheme

Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS) applies to pupils in full-time state education who receive musical tuition at a school, or in a local authority orchestra, as part of their curriculum. Under AIPS, a local authority can purchase new instruments on behalf of the pupils and recover the VAT it incurs on the cost of the purchase with no VAT being charged to the parent.
