Gas and electricity VAT rate re-instatement

The Ukraine – Russia conflict imposed marked pressure on gas and energy prices, both in Europe and globally. In turn, multiple EU governments were obligated to offer concessions on gas and electricity VAT rates, to render affordable prices for consumers.

While it is an overstatement to say that gas prices have returned to their original values prior to the conflict, there is evidence to suggest that gas and electricity prices are stabilising. This has had a direct correlation with fiscal policies that counties deploy and is a sharp illustration of the measure significant global affairs hold on a constantly shifting tax landscape.

Germany has also been assessing its VAT rates in light of this evolution. From 1 April 2024, the standard VAT rate of 19% will be applied to gas and electricity, in line with rates prior to the conflict, up from the 7% VAT rate that was introduced as a consequence of the conflict.
