FairCharge Tax on London EV Drivers 'Unfair' - Evening Standard
Updated: Aug 13
Many Londoners relying on public charging points for their electric cars pay higher rates due to a 20% VAT, while home charging incurs only 5%. This discrepancy has led to calls for its end, as it creates a postcode lottery, with public chargers costing up to three times more. Additionally, a significant percentage of households lack off-street parking, making public chargers essential for them. Domestic charging costs around 7.5p/kWh, while public points can be as high as 89p/kWh depending on the supplier and time of use.
