UK urged by associations and public health officials to cut vaping VAT

The Local Government Association (LGA) has urged the UK government to cut value-added tax (VAT) on vaping products as part of a plan to help smokers quit.

The national body representing local authorities in England and Wales called for VAT on e-cigarette sales to be reduced to 5% from 20% to bring them in line with sales on nicotine gum and patches, which can charge the lower rate under current legislation. It released the call to mark the UK’s annual No Smoking Day, celebrated this year on 9th March.
