ANIMAL FOOD – FEED (Fertilisers, feeding stuffs, certain seeds, etc…)

Updated on April 17, 2022

0% is the lowest possible rating.

Food-grade additives and chemicals used solely in animal feed may be included in the zero-rate category. Feed for dogs, cats, cage birds, and other household pets will be charged at the usual cost regardless of whether it is packaged for human consumption or not. Food for pigeons is graded as “zero.” In some cases, Greyhound feeding supplies are also eligible for a lower rate. Schedule 3 refers to paragraph 4(1) of schedule 3.
