SAIF advises members that the temporary zero VAT rate on PPE introduced in May 2020 is due to end on 31st October. Therefore members may wish to consider placing orders for additional stock sooner rather than later in order to take advantage of the exemption period and save 20% on costs. 

Products covered by the zero rate include:
– disposable gloves
– disposable plastic aprons
– disposable fluid-resistant coveralls or gowns
– surgical masks – including fluid-resistant type IIR surgical masks – filtering face piece respirators
– eye and face protection – including single or reusable full face visors or goggles.
