VAT treatment of food supplements

Mar 04, 2019

Revenue has delayed the introduction of a VAT rate of 23 percent on certain food supplements until 1 November 2019.  In December 2018 Revenue issued updated guidance on the VAT treatment of food supplements distinguishing between food supplement products which could be zero rated and those which should be standard rated.  Before the delay was announced, this guidance was to take effect from 1 March 2019.
