How you can help BIBA fight IPT increases

10th February 2017

Dear Member,

The rate of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) has increased three times in the last 18 months, doubling the rate from 6% to 12%.  This is historically unprecedented and we are concerned about further increases.


We would like to understand how these increases have impacted customers and I would appreciate it if you could spare a few minutes to complete our short questionnaire.

Click here to take survey.

The results will remain anonymous and will be used to support and evidence our call on Government for no further increase to IPT.  Although if there are any cases studies you would permit us to make public then we would only do this with your full approval.

Write to your MP

We have created a template letter you can use to write to your local MP, asking them to bring the issue up with the Minister responsible for the tax, Jane Ellison MP. This is an important way to demonstrate the strength of feeling and level of concern to those who make the decisions in HM Treasury.

You will need to include your postal address in any correspondence you send.

Kind regards
