As announced in the Budget, women’s sanitary products are to be zero rated for VAT from 1 January 2021, meaning no VAT will be charged on their purchase.

Incontinence products can already be zero rated for VAT, if for example they are purchased for personal use by a person who is incontinent, or by any charity that makes the products available to incontinent people.
