The old VAT rates will apply again from January 1, 2021. This means that services, food and goods again account for 19 percent. Exceptions are selected foods, which are taxed at seven percent (up to December 31, five percent) according to the sales tax law. Such foods are
- Meat and meat offal,
- Fish and crustaceans,
- Vegetables and fruits,
- Milk, milk products and eggs
- Coffee, tea, spices,
- Sugar, cocoa, flakes and flour,

Aldi Süd, dm, Rossmann, Penny, Deichmann and Douglas had deducted the VAT reduction at the checkout. The prices on the shelves and brochures did not change. Lidl, Globus, Kaufland, Rewe and Edeka changed the price tags. Dealers have already announced that they want to implement VAT by January 2nd at the latest.
Basically, the following applies: crooked prices indicate the low value added tax (16 percent), cents that end with 5, 8.9 or 0 usually mean that the food accounts for 19 percent or seven percent.
