LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s finance ministry said on Friday it will extend the scrapping of sales tax on personal protective equipment (PPE) for infectious diseases until the end of October.
“Extending the zero VAT rate on PPE will provide the relief needed by care homes in particular, so that as many people as possible continue to be protected against the coronavirus,” junior finance minister Jesse Norman said in a statement.
