In July the government announced a number of measures to help Irish people out during the Covid Pandemic. One of these is the reduction of the higher VAT rate for 6 months.
From Sept 1st 2020 to Feb 28th 2021 the higher VAT rate will be 21%
This means that when you are accounting for your VAT in this period of time you need to make sure you use 21%. While this should be clear on your purchases receipts it's no harm to double check that your suppliers are only charging the 21% rate. This also means that you may need to update your Accounting Software with the new VAT rate and make sure that it is charged correctly to your customers.
