Furthermore, I notice that VAT is still levied on energy purchases at a rate of 5% - that was reduced from 20% back in the day (1997) by the new Labour government. My question simply is that heating/powering your home is a necessity not a luxury, even more so during lockdowns. Why do we have to pay VAT at all?
