What is the future of e-cigarette tax policy in Europe?

Time:2017-08-07 Views:2281
Seven eu member states have set their own tax plans as the commission negotiates the tax on e-cigarettes. 
 
Among them, various tax rates have been set. But unlike American states and local governments that impose taxes on different principles, most European taxes are set by the principle of how much tax is levied on each milliliter of oil. 
 
Every four years, the European commission must review the tax rate and the consumption tax structure applied to tobacco production, which is explained in detail in the 2011/64 / EU directive and has been revised as appropriate. The directive requires a tax framework for tobacco products to ensure a uniform approach among member states. 
 
E-cigarettes are not currently included in the directive, and although the product (HNB) contains tobacco, it is subject to tax policy, but how it is handled is unclear. 
 
In a report to the European council in December 2015, the commission reviewed the directive‘s recommendations for further analysis of the possibility of "including e-cigarettes included in the consumption tax on tobacco products". Six months later, in June 2016, the committee released an assessment of the impact of an instruction that included e-cigarettes and other revisions. 
 
On November 17, 2016, the commission issued a public consultation to collect comments on the directive from eu citizens and stakeholders. In particular, it is interested in expanding the range of the directive to e-cigarettes. The consultation period ends on February 16, 2017. 
 
Although the commission step by step to a unified method for steam products close to tax the resolution, but a growing number of eu member states have a consumption tax, without waiting for instructions from Brussels. 
 
In 2016, the three countries (Latvia, Romania and Slovenia) through the tax on heating electronic cigarettes and tobacco products, like Italy and Portugal, they passed a tax bill in 2014. Hungary and Greece have approved a consumption tax on e-cigarettes, which will take effect in January 2017. Of the 28 eu member states, seven will introduce the e-cigarette tax system, independent of any eu mandate. 
 
Consensus is emerging 
 
Although there is no clear indication of how the consumption tax on electronic cigarettes should be enacted, a clear trend is emerging. Seven countries have set tax policies based on the amount of tobacco used in e-cigarettes. 
 
In 2014, in Italy and combustible cigarette tax, smoke oil tax 0.3743 euros per milliliter replacing the rushed out of the flat tax in accordance with the electronic cigarettes (including equipment and spare parts) calculation of retail price AD valorem tax. 
 
Since then, other European countries have adopted similar low-tax rates, based on smokeless oil. Only Portugal has a higher tax rate than Italy, and Latvia USES a hybrid tax structure, with one euro per milliliter per milligram of nicotine. 
 
Serbia‘s hopes of joining the European Union, which launched in 2015 per milliliter oil smoke 4 the specific duties of Serbian dinar, considering the inflation in July 2016, increased to 4.06 Serbian dinars (0.033 euro). 
 
Not surprisingly, these same European markets have modified their consumer tax laws to make heating tobacco a new product category. In all cases, the tax is based on the weight of the tobacco mixture. 
 
Even though the heat tobacco consumption law in Portugal is defined as a unique product category, to apply to the tax law, but it with chewing tobacco and tobacco group, restricted by a combination of specific duties and AD valorem tax. 
 
In May 2017, the slovak republic will introduce a tax of 73.90 euros per kilogram of smokeless tobacco. Smokeless tobacco is a new category of tobacco that does not include chewing tobacco and snuff, which does not burn when used.
