BoilerJuice.com are appealing to the government to Zero rate the VAT on domestic home 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 in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Fuel duty currently stands at 5%, which, at current oil prices, adds around £30 to the bill every time a users 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.
We need at least 100,000 signatures for our petition to be eligible for debate in the House of Commons, so please take a minute to sign the petition today.
Please note: signing the e-petiton will not result in an instant 5% off your order, this will only be achieved with future orders if HMRC zero rate vate on home heating oil.
