Insurance Premium Tax Increase – 1st October 2016


Following the Chancellor’s March (2016) budget, the rate of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) on the standard rate will increase by a further 0.5% to 10%.

This applies to all commercial insurance premiums and the increase takes effect from 1st October 2016.

This will include all policies incepted or renewed on or after the 1st October 2016.

If you have any queries regarding the change and how it will affect you please contact your local authority representative.
