Leaflets and VAT (the special case)
Leaflets are a special case. To be 0 rated they must satisfy a number of conditions: 
1. Firstly, they must convey information (i.e. have a significant amount of text) and be made for hand-held reading rather than display on a wall. 
2. Secondly, they must be made of a single sheet of paper up to A4 size (or up to A2 size if printed on both sides of the unfolded sheet and then folded down to a final size smaller than A2). 
3. Thirdly they must be a complete item not part of a larger item. And finally, to qualify as 0 rated, leaflets should not be printed on a card stock of over 230gsm.
*The other thing to consider is whether the leaflet contains a form. If more than a quarter of the printed matters constitute a form the leaflet is VATABLE!
