Tesco to cover the cost of VAT on tampons

Tesco has become the first supermarket to cover the cost of VAT on women’s sanitary products.

The retailer has implemented a 5% price reduction which will cover the cost of the so-called ‘Tampon Tax’ or VAT on the items ahead of Government proposals to remove the tax. The reduction will be applied to nearly 100 Tesco own label and branded products in the range.

Tesco previously committed to passing on the 5% saving to customers when the Government’s proposed removal of VAT came into force, but has now acted sooner.

Michelle McEttrick, Tesco group brand director, said: “For many of our customers, tampons, panty liners and sanitary towels are essential products. However, the cost of buying them every month can add up, and for many women and girls it can be a real struggle on top of other essential items.”
