Digital newspapers and ebooks VAT cut

Legislation to cut VAT to zero on digital newspapers and ebooks was scheduled to take effect from 1 December 2020 but has been brought forward and is effective from today.

This is a welcome move for publishers of online reading materials who have long argued that distinguishing between paper and digital versions of books and newspapers was unfair.
