Can the imac stand be removed and replaced with a vesa mount?

I have a late-2013 27" iMac but the new location for my computer doesn't have the necessary height for the stand.

Can the stand be removed and a VESA mount be retrofitted so I can wall-mount the iMac?

    For older iMac's yes. For the latest iMac and the laterest Thunderbold display you cannot remove the stand. You have to buy a stand version or a VESA mount version and they cannot be changed after. This is not clear when you order the VESA kit. It will not work on the latest Thunderbolt displays as the stand cannot be removed.
