Removal of VAT on Key Inputs in the Poultry Industry

October 19, 2020

With effect from October 1, 2020, there will be NO Value Added Tax (VAT) on fertilisers, agrochemicals, pesticides and other key inputs used in the poultry industry.

This measure accords with the amendment of Schedule I of the Value-Added Tax Act to reflect the insertion of paragraph 11:

“11. The following supplies are zero-rated for the purposes of section 17-
(a)uncooked bird’s eggs;
(b)uncooked fresh, chilled or frozen chicken;
(c)hatching eggs;
(d)baby chicks and live chicks;
(e)a supply of poultry feed and ingredients of poultry feed;
(f)a supply of packaging material for the use in the poultry industry;
(g)fertilizers;
(h)agro-chemicals;
(i)pesticides.”
