Greece has published Law 4753/2020 in the Official Gazette, which includes certain tax measures in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. One of the main measures is an extension of the 6% reduced VAT provided for products needed for protection from COVID-19 and to prevent its transmission, including:
- masks and gloves;
- antiseptic solutions, wipes, and other preparations;
- soap and other preparations for personal hygiene; and
- ethyl alcohol, if used as a raw material for the production of antiseptics.
This rate reduction was scheduled to expire on 31 December 2020 but will now apply until 30 April 2021.
