Stop charging VAT on excise duty.

Currently the British Government charge excise duty on all types of fuel.  In addition to this the British Government charge VAT on the same products and an proportion of this is charged on the Excise Duty thereby taxing a tax.  Whilst this obviously brings in a significant amount of money for HM Treasury surely it is unjust to TAX a TAX.

fuel costs

Fuel costs and other motoring costs are going to RISE despite the oil prices? Ok? Its happening? If you as a Goivernment are NOT going to step in and STOP garages from over charging us at the pump (by a new teired retail profit  price based tax system)

Then lets al least HELP people who NEED transport. I propose that taxis, busses, police services, ambulances, fire services, are all essential. And that for this reason they should be allowed to run on RED DIESEL. At present only agricultural vehicles can do this and it does not seem right.

Road Tax To Be Put On Petrol

Road Tax To Be Put On Petrol

No one will be able to avoid not paying Road Tax any more as the people need petrol to run their cars. 

Even working on the current banding using the engine size, for example the 4×4 need more petrol so will be paying more tax when they fill up at the pumps.

Replace Road tax by adding the cost to the price of fuel

Road tax is a pain to deal with for the population and requires a department to administer it, print/produce tax discs and gives the police another regulation to have to monitor and prosecute over.

Divide the annual revenue from Road tax by the amount of fuel sold annually and add that to the price of fuel. This will have the added benefit of punishing those who use the most fuel so helping to reduce annual milage or increase the drive to fuel efficient vehicles. ITS A GREEN TAX ASWELL THEN!

To implement all that needs to be done is to pro rater the next tax discs based on them all ending on the same date, say 12 months from announcement. So implementation due on the 1st Jan 2012, all tax discs bought in the 12 months prior to that will end on that date.
