Reduce Fuel Charges for Small Businesses

The current average petrol price per litre in the UK 132.9 pence. 56 pence of this is fuel duty and 22.2 pence is VAT.*

At Damp Away we are aware of how many of our customers are small businesses and we share their interests. We have therefore created a dedicated area on this site to tell you about some of the campaigns we believe in and which we hope you will support

This petition is to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, asking him to reduce the VAT charge on the fuel duty element of fuel, which is in effect a tax (VAT) on being charged another tax (Fuel Duty).

This campaign was inspired by the Get Britain Trading manifesto produced by the Forum of Private Business (fpb)

Stop VAT charges on the Fuel Duty element of fuel prices

An FPB survey showed that 36% of businesses consider transport costs (predominantly the cost of fuel) as a main cost pressure of their business

Fuel prices have increased by 30 % over the past 2 years which is making transport around the UK prohibitively expensive. Economic growth relies heavily on the ability of businesses to move products and services around the country so we can see that the high prices may be contributing to the UK’s continuing economic decline.

Therefore we are asking George Osborne to remove this additional tax on a tax –on the grounds of being fair to the customer and to prevent the strangulation of transport and the economic recovery. 

This should provide an average reduction in cost of 11.5p per litre – providing some small but necessary relief for UK small businesses
