Mikhail Mishustin expanded the list of medical goods that are not subject to VAT

Cars for transportation of disabled people have been added to the list of medical goods, the import and sale of which is exempt from value added tax (VAT). This resolution was signed by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

These are specially equipped passenger cars. They are equipped with lifts, handrails, special fasteners, security and warning devices. In this case, the type approval of the vehicle or the certificate of safety of its design must contain appropriate entries.
