Zero VAT for Bike and Active Travel Equipment Hire and Sales

Zero VAT for Bike and Active Travel Equipment Hire and Sales

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Active travel equipment and services has VAT applied at 20% where fossil fuels such as heating oil are just 5%. Lets use the tax system to incentivise the desired behaviours and dis-incentivise climate damaging choices. What do you need to make this change? Successful lobbying at Westminster?

Points

could make cycling equipment cheaper

maybe the tax could be ringfenced in money from it could be spend on cycling infrastracture

This will reduce the cost of cycling, which will help to encourage it, which in turn will reduce emissions and obesity.
