Boris puts 20% VAT back on Facemasks and Glovess.

Hi

Yes, this is not a joke.

As from next month VAT of 20% is added to the cost of facemasks and gloves.

This will severely impact on the most vulnerable.

Those who live on basic State Pension and those on Minimum Wage.

So much for levelling up.

No. Not Boris. The government and if anyone then Rishi Sunak.

Ah it was only temporarily lifted for the period of April to 31st oct. Had no idea that they would charge VAT on such items. Bizarre.

To pay for lack of financial controls having thrown the rule book down the drain you mean?

Re: Boris puts 20% VAT back on Facemasks and Glovess.

May I leave this here?

https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_custom...c/vat-rates_en

If you dig deeper:
"According to a statement by the government, it acted as soon as possible to bring the VAT exemption into force and highlighted that the UK is still bound to EU law governing the tax."

I predict that when we leave EU law etc the VAT rulebook will be torn up and all will be taxed. (not recovered as it is now)
