Axe the Reading Tax

24 October 2018

The Publishers Association (PA) has launched a campaign calling for the removal of VAT on all digital publications: ebooks, audiobooks, research journals, textbooks and educational materials, newspapers and magazines. The campaign centres on three themes:
  • increasing fairness, 
  • stimulating growth, and 
  • modernising the tax system. 
The PA wrote to Chancellor Philip Hammond MP ahead of the budget at the end of October to raise concerns. You can read more about the strong case for zero rating on the PA website.
