Treasury Extends Two New VAT Exemptions to Pharmacies

A VAT exemption on healthcare will be extended from May 1 to include medical services supervised by pharmacists, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced in his spring budget yesterday (March 15).

This will allow contractors to review the VAT status of any locally commissioned services they provide where provision occurs under the “direct supervision” of a pharmacist.

The government will also extend the zero rate to medicines supplied under a patient group direction (PGD) in autumn this year, it said.
