Osborne Accused Of Double Taxation On Energy Bills

Fuel poverty charity National Energy Action calculates the Treasury reaped £27m in VAT on carbon levies in 2013 alone

** The Chancellor has been accused of making tens of millions of pounds in double taxation on energy bills – by charging VAT on top of “green” taxes.

In a report on Monday, fuel poverty charity National Energy Action calculates the Treasury reaped £27m in VAT on carbon levies in 2013 alone and that this will rise to £113m by 2020 unless the carbon tax is frozen. Several green measures are now funded through consumer bills and the NEA says it is unfair that consumers should face the sales tax on such levies. **

There is and always has been (since VAT was applied to the goods in question) VAT on road fuel, tobacco and alcohol duties (plus others no doubt).

Putting it on green taxes is standard practice.

It is a rotten practice then.
