VAT Exemption List in Bangladesh 2024

VAT Exemption List in Bangladesh

Income tax and VAT apply to any source of income as per the laws and regulations of Bangladesh. It has to be provided by the government following specific rules.

But there are certain products on which no VAT is payable by the government. All these products are free from VAT. Today we will discuss the effects on which no VAT is applicable. Let’s begin today’s critical discussion.

Vat Exemption in Bangladesh

We pay taxes and VAT to the government for any business. Taxes and VAT are also applicable to products purchased from a company in your country. If we buy any product from another country, also we have to pay VAT and tax there.

If we purchase any vehicle or goods service from any place for any such business purpose, we have to pay VAT to the government at a specific rate, and the government also collects VAT on our assets.

We have some assets and services on which the government does not charge VAT like other goods. We can use all these products as much as we want for our own needs. But the government will not charge any VAT on these.

Today we have presented the most updated 2022-24 products on which the government will not take any tax. All these products are free from VAT. Let’s learn them from our discussion.

♦Goods Exempted from Value-Added Tax

Some goods are exempted from Value-Added Tax, meaning that VAT is not levied on these goods. The National Board of Revenue determines the list of goods that are exempted from VAT.

Some of the goods that are exempted from VAT in Bangladesh include basic food items such as rice, wheat, salt, sugar, vegetables, fruits, and fish. Let’s know about the goods broadly.
