To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to bring VAT on digital publications in line with printed books following the EU's decision to allow all member states to give e-books and audiobooks the same VAT-free status as printed books.
The Government keeps all taxes under review, including Value Added Tax (VAT) on e-publications.
Any amendments to the VAT regime as it applies to physical publications and e-publications must be carefully assessed against policy, economic and fiscal considerations.
