Portugal halves e-liquid tax rate blamed for vape store closures

13th January 2017 | Regulatory briefing |

Portugal looks set to cut the tax on nicotine e-liquids by 50%, from €0.60/ml ($0.70) to €0.30/ml ($0.35) in its budget for 2017.
The country currently has the highest rate of tax on e-juices of all the European member states, something that has been blamed for the drastic drop in the number of vape stores in the country.
