EU commission to include proposals for increased flexibility for member states with respect to reduced rates of VAT, which would provide the option to all member states of VAT zero rating for sanitary products.

We even got the attention of US president Barack Obama when asked in an interview recently said he’s opposed to the practice of taxing these products as as non-essential items. “I have no idea why states would tax these as luxury items,” Obama said. “I suspect it’s because men were making the laws when those taxes were passed.”
