Motion text

That this House notes there is a discrepancy between VAT on residential off-street electric vehicle charging which is charged at 5 per cent and VAT on public charging which is charged at 20 per cent; urges the Government to scrap this discrepancy and reduce VAT on public charging to 5 per cent; notes that 60 per cent of households in major towns and cities do not have access to off-street parking and therefore pay a higher rate of VAT on EV charging; recognises the important role electric vehicles and their associated infrastructure will play in decarbonising the UK’s transport network; and urges the Government to do more to increase provision of EV Chargers.
