All YOU NEED TO KNOW REGARDING 12% INSURANCE PREMIUM TAX

Amid reports that car insurance premiums have seen an 8% increase in six months, the new rate of insurance premium tax is only weeks away from coming into force.

On the 1st June, the new figure of 12% is estimated to add £51 to the average household’s bills, with an increase on car insurance of £15 a year, according to research from Mirror Money.

However, the government insists that when offset with a crackdown on whiplash claims and a freeze in fuel duty, drivers may see a decrease in their motoring outgoings, despite the change in IPT.

 

IPT – when it will affect you

Policies arranged after 1st June
Unlike previous increases – of which there have already been two in recent times – there will be no concessionary period, meaning new policies and renewals arranged after the 1st June will automatically come with the higher 12% rate. The rate will also apply to any mid-term adjustments, which may be pertinent to businesses which have seen a change in circumstances, such as an expansion or relocation.


Policies arranged after 1st June
It won’t apply, however, to policies arranged or renewed before the 1st June. Any mid-term adjustments or cancellations will also follow the same rate as that which the policy was arranged with – so 10% if it was purchased before 1st June.
