Latvia’s Ministry of Finance has confirmed plans to introduce a new, super reduced VAT rate of 5% from 1 January 2018. The new rate will apply to a range of locally produced vegetables and fruit.

Under the provisions of the EU’s VAT Directive, EU member states may have two reduced VAT rates which should be at least 5% or above. Latvia already has a reduced VAT rate of 12%.
