Insurance premium tax is increased again in autumn statement

Chancellor’s move is branded a ‘hammer blow for the hard-pressed’, with young drivers and those in London expected to be hardest hit.

Insurers and motoring groups have reacted with fury to the government’s announcement that insurance premium tax (IPT) will rise to 12% from June next year.

The tax, which is added to 50m general insurance policies each year including those for cars, homes and private medical cover, had been described in the runup to the statement by the industry as the UK’s “fastest growing stealth tax”.

Announcing the extra 2% increase, the chancellor, Philip Hammond, said IPT rates in the UK remained some of the lowest in Europe and that money was needed to pay for the government’s infrastructure plans. But the Association of British Insurers (ABI) described the increase as a “hammer blow for the hard-pressed”.

From 1 June 2017, most buyers of insurance policies will see the higher 12% rate added to their premium.

Since IPT was introduced in 1994 at 2.5% it has been steadily increased by successive chancellors. IPT has been hiked three times in the past 18 months: the latest rise – of 0.5%, which took the rate to 10% – came into force just last month, on 1 October. Only as far back as 2010 the rate was just 5%.
