IPT ANNOUNCEMENT – 1 JUNE 2017 RATE CHANGE
As you may be aware, the 2017 Spring Budget announced that the standard rate of IPT (Insurance Premium Tax) will increase by 2% to 12% with effect from 1st June 2017.
As your Insurance Broker, it is very important to us that you understand the changes and how they will affect you.
NEW POLICIES & RENEWALS:
The following approach will apply to all policies subject to the standard rate of IPT:
Inception/Renewal Date BEFORE 1st June 2017: 10%
Inception/Renewal Date ON OR AFTER 1st June 2017: 12%
As a general rule, return premiums (credits) to policies incepted before the 1st June will have the former rate of 10% applied to them, and additional premiums (debits) will have the new rate of 12% applied.
We will clearly show the rate of IPT that has been applied to each adjustment on your Invoice, so there are no surprises.
