SNP will demand the next UK government reduce VAT on green home improvements

The SNP has announced that it will demand the next UK government to end the “Treasury’s 20% tax on making people’s homes warmer”.

In a statement published on 24 November, the party also criticised the UK government’s decision to increase the VAT on home solar panels from 5% to 20%.

SNP candidate for Dundee West Chris Law said: “Scotland is already a world-leader on tackling the climate crisis and delivering green energy. It’s time for the UK government to  match the SNP’s ambition and cut VAT on energy improvements so more people across Scotland can make their homes greener and warmer.”
