Which paper products do you pay VAT ?
Guidelines (below) for VAT on printed paper stationery.
VAT applies to some printed-paper stationery, but which ones. Here are a couple of lists showing you examples of VAT able and zero-rated.
UK is currently @ 20% at the time of writing (Dec 2015).
Zero rated products
Books, Booklets, Brochures, Catalogues, Flyers (to be distributed by hand), Newsletters, Newspapers & Pamphlets.
Leaflets are slightly different, in order for them to be zero-rated; they must contain a large amount of text on one side of the leaflet. The main reason for the leaflets must also be for hand held purposes. A4 is the maximum size and it must be a single item, no heavier than 230gsm.
If all these conditions are met, leaflets are zero-rated.
