Zero VAT on PPE

VAT Zero rating for Personal Protective Equipment

On the 30th April 2020 the Government announced that a new temporary zero VAT rate will apply to supplies of PPE as defined by Public Health England’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) PPE guidance which was issued on the 24th April 2020.

This measure will take effect from 1st May 2020 to 31st July 2020.

This temporary relief is being introduced as an urgent response to the coronavirus emergency. The main objective is to relieve businesses, particularly in the healthcare and residential care sectors, of the burden of tax on essential infection protection equipment needed to deal with the emergency. This will particularly aid sectors that cannot recover VAT on such goods due to their VAT exempt status, such as care homes, but will benefit all consumers.

All of our products that qualify for this temporary relief with be clearly marked with the ‘Zero VAT Logo’ and will state this within their description.

This measure is currently a temporary set to remain in effect until the 31st July 2020.
