Increase in UK Insurance Premium Tax


The UK Government announced on 23 November 2016 that the standard UK Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) will increase by 2% (from 10% to 12%), with effect from 1 June 2017. The higher rate of 20% for insurance supplied with selected goods and services (such as certain travel, motor cars, and domestic appliances) remains unchanged.
