Phase out VAT in 2 stages In first 6 months reduce VAT to 10% and after 2 years remove VAT completely.

VAT is a direct tax that has an unfair impact on the poorest in society. For example the poorest pay on average 12% of their income on VAT, while the richest 10% pay on average 5% of their income.

Removing VAT would stimulate small business by cutting their retail price by 20%. It would mean that introducing a higher minimum wage would not have such a detrimental impact on smaller businesses. It would put more money in the pocket of the poorest.

New policy working alongside TPA1001; TPA1003; TPA1009; TPA1013; TPA1016; TPA1035; TPA1070.
