Petition Action

Zero rate VAT On Domestic Heating Oil

Additional Information

BoilerJuice.com are appealing to the government to Zero rate the VAT on domestic heating oil for all non-commercial users.

We are calling for action to help oil users keep warm in the face of rising domestic heating oil costs. Fuel duty currently stands at 5%, which, at current oil prices, adds around £30 to the bill every time a fills up with 1000 litres.

To someone struggling to pay their bills on a fixed income, it equates to heating their home for an extra couple of weeks, or having the cash to turn the heating up a degree or two as well as to buy food.
