Scrap VAT on air vests - petition

It doesn’t make sense that air vests, which are clearly safety equipment, should be subject to UK VAT when other items, like helmets, are not.

IAM Roadsmart have started a petition. Every biker should sign it, I’d say.

Are you sure that air vests should be encouraged?

I’ve signed it cheers, although it would be interesting to see how the consumer will realise the saving

I’ve signed it but think they’ve dropped a bollock as IMO all motorcycling clothing that’s CE rated should be zero rated too

If they remove the VAT people don’t immediately see a 20% price drop there will be questions to be answered when the whole point is to make them more affordable.
