Ireland changes VAT rates for newspapers, tourism, and hospitality in 2023

28 December 2022

From 1 January 2023, the Irish government confirmed it will cut the VAT rate applied to:

  • Newspapers and news periodicals from 9% to the zero rate of VAT.
  • Some pharmaceutical and health-related products, including defibrillators, non-oral nicotine therapy and non-oral hormone replacement therapy from 23% to the zero rate of VAT.

This was announced as part of a set of measures in the Irish budget for 2023.

The Irish government also confirmed that the temporary VAT rate reduction to 9% in the tourism and hospitality sectors will not be extended, meaning the VAT rate will revert to 13.5% from 1 March 2023.
