E&Y slams air passenger tax increase

Tax expert at firm calls it 'inefficient and disruptive'

The decision by the Treasury to increase the
Airline
Passenger Duty
has been slammed by Ernst & Young as being ‘inefficient
and disruptive’

Chris
Sanger
, head of tax policy development at Ernst & Young, said: ‘The
change in the rate of APD for contracts that were concluded prior to the
pre-Budget Report is a regrettable decision by the
Treasury.

‘This has introduced significant market disruption, something that has been
avoided in the past by providing greater advance notice (thus reducing the
number of flights already booked),’ he added.
