The DMA, working with the Charity Tax Group, have reached agreement with HMRC that there will be no retrospective demands for VAT or penalties to those suppliers and their clients who were including postage as part of a supply of zero-rated print.
The DMA has also reached agreement on how postage and other services should be treated in future and agreed an implementation date of 1 April 2015 so that the industry has time to put in place alternative arrangements. HMRC will be issuing revised guidance but for the sake of clarity from 1 April 2015 HMRC will be applying the following:
- Postage included with zero-rated print as a composite supply will be treated as a supply of advertising at standard rate
- Zero-rated print may be supplied with standard rated postage as part of a multiple supply. Supplying both services separately does not constitute a supply of advertising services
- Zero-rated print can also be supplied with postage that is treated as a disbursement eg under agency agreements
- Data processing that is necessary to meet the postal operator’s published requirements can be included as part of a zero-rated supply of print. Any data work that is not required for making the print suitable for posting eg selections, targeting, list buying, profiling, should be a separate standard rated supply
