Tax deductions for medical devices

The Italian Revenue Agency has unequivocally clarified that the purchase of mattresses, pillows, and bed frames entitles one to an income tax deduction for healthcare expenses, provided that these items are considered medical devices and bear the CE mark, meeting the requirements outlined in Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on Medical Devices.

The Ministry of Health provides access to a database of Medical Devices on their website. You can review the Medical Devices registered by B&T S.p.A. at any time.

These mattresses, pillows, and bed frames can be sold as Medical Devices, making the buyer eligible for tax deductions. To claim the deduction, the taxpayer must provide the following document:

  • An invoice issued by DB S.r.l. that includes the private customer code, the CE mark (in compliance with European directives), and the device number.

It is important to request the invoice at the time of purchase in order to benefit from the tax deductions. If the invoice is not requested and specified in the appropriate field during the checkout process, it will not be possible to request it at a later time.

For orders placed on the website, the invoice valid for tax purposes will be issued by the 15th day of the following month after shipment.
