Feminine Hygiene Industry/Innovation/ Related News:

October 05, 2019 ---- The German government announced its plans to reduce the sales tax on feminine hygiene products from 19% to 7% starting in 2020. The decision was based on the campaigns that many women took part in requesting the reduction. The tax reduction would be introduced as part of annual tax amendments for 2020 and go into effect as of January 1, 2020.

The move is a part of growing international resistance to the higher tax rate on feminine hygiene products. Under German tax law, the lower rate of 7% is intended for products necessary for everyday life, while the higher rate of 19% applies to luxury goods. However, in practice, it is not always clear why a specific tax rate is applied. Some German states, like Thuringia and Bremen, have already reduced the tax or eliminated it completely.
