Fuels: Taxation

Question for Treasury

UIN 18020, tabled on 14 June 2022

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what the total amount raised by HM Treasury is on taxes relating to fuel sold to (a) domestic and (b) business consumers for every fiscal year since 2010 in both (i) nominal and (ii) inflation adjusted terms.

The information is not available.

HMRC does not hold information on VAT revenue from specific products or services because businesses are not required to provide figures at a product level on their VAT returns, as this would impose an excessive administrative burden.

Revenue from Fuel Duty is paid upon clearance to the market rather than point of sale, and therefore no breakdown between domestic and business consumers is held.
