A zero-rate of VAT will apply to sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) for Covid-19 from 1 May 2020 until 31 July 2020, a move they said will save care homes and businesses more than £100 million.
This announcement comes after import duty was also removed from PPE used in the context of Covid-19.
