VAT

E-publications

The government will introduce legislation to apply a zero rate of VAT to e-publications from 1 December 2020, to make it clear that e-books, e-newspapers, e-magazines and academic e-journals are entitled to the same VAT treatment as their physical counterparts. 

Tampon tax

From 1 January 2021 the government will apply a zero rate of VAT to women's sanitary products.

Postponed accounting

From 1 January 2021 postponed accounting for VAT will apply to all imports of goods, including those from the EU.

Comment

The postponed accounting for VAT aims to provide a boost to those VAT registered UK businesses which are integrated in international supply chains as they adapt to the UK's new trading arrangements under Brexit.

Plastic Packaging Tax

This will be a new tax that applies to plastic packaging produced in or imported into the UK that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic. The tax rate will be £200 per tonne of non-compliant plastic packaging. A consultation on the design and implementation of the tax has been issued and the tax is to take effect from April 2022.
