The government’s VAT holiday on PPE has ended, but at Hygiene2Go, we are maintaining our VAT-free prices, so that you don’t have to pay more.
From 1st November, 20% VAT applies on all masks and gloves, meaning businesses and consumers have to pay more for vital PPE. Hygiene2Go is absorbing that cost so that we can continue to offer the most competitive prices on the supplies and equipment you need to protect yourself, your staff, and your customers.
The government initially cut the tax to zero on 1 May for Public Health England approved PPE to help frontline workers and care homes, but the temporary VAT waiver ended at the start of this month.
Health and social care providers are now able to source PPE via a government portal, but private sector businesses and ordinary consumers cannot.
Dermot Murphy, Managing Director of DM Hygiene Solutions said, “keeping people safe from COVID19 and supporting businesses with their sanitisation and social distancing needs in the most cost effective way is our priority, so we are absorbing the additional VAT costs and keeping our PPE prices stable.”
