According to the new regulations, the 0% VAT rate on certain food items (listed in points 1-18 of Appendix 10 to the VAT Law) has been extended to 2023. The 0% VAT rate was also extended until June 30th, 2023 for the free supply of goods and provision of services for the purposes of assisting victims of the effects of warfare on the territory of Ukraine (if the supplies are made to the Government Agency for Strategic Reserves, medical entities, local government units).
The VAT rate on soil conditioners, growth stimulators or cultivation substrates was raised from 0% to 8%.
The Ordinance also restores (subject to the above-mentioned service goods) VAT rates which were reduced on February 1, 2022 (which we wrote about here: Temporary VAT reduction from February 1) in connection with the so-called anti-inflation shield, such as the 23% rate on fuel.
