‘Disappointing’: Plans to cut VAT for electric car chargers rejected – 'massive blunder'

He said: “It’s disappointing the Government appears to be closing the door on fairer taxation for electric vehicles. 

“The real issue is that those EV owners without driveways will be hugely dependent on public chargepoints, so it cannot be fair they are effectively being hit with a much higher rate of taxation than those that can charge at home.

“If the Government wants to make electric vehicle ownership truly universal, it needs to rectify this anomaly quickly.”

VAT makes a significant contribution towards the public finances, raising around £130 billion in 2019 and 2020, and helps fund the Government’s priorities including the NHS, schools, and defence.
