Netherlands-Tax Plan 2018

The Dutch Tax Plan 2018 has recently been announced, and amongst other taxation issues, the VAT treatment applicable to supplies of medical goods has been clarified.

The outcome of the plan is that the 6% reduced rate will now only apply where the product has been issued with a specific trade permit and is displayed on the appropriate registry.

This may mean that products previously being seen as subject to the reduced rate such as certain toothpastes and sun cream, will be subject to the standard rate from 2018.
