Vaping Products Duty consultation

The government announced a new Vaping Products Duty starting in October 2026, along with increased tobacco duties, as part of Budget 2024. The duty aims to discourage non-smokers and young people from vaping while maintaining a financial incentive to choose vaping over smoking. The Department of Health & Social Care announced restrictions on vaping products earlier in 2024. HM Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs are seeking input from stakeholders to shape policy development and ensure the duty meets its objectives. The consultation provides details on how the duty will be implemented and builds on existing measures to address vaping-related harms.
