Tax on vanity

VAT on cosmetic surgery, will that be a Vanity Added Tax?

IlieNever missing a chance to grab even more money from Joe Public, ToffTories’ Chancellor George Osborne plans to raise up to £500m a year by putting VAT on cosmetic surgery which will up the cost of ‘ops’ by 20% adding about £1,000 to a breast operation.

Until now, VAT has been charged only on minor treatments including Botox injections and chemical peels carried out in High Street beauty salons.

Patients having such cosmetic procedures will pay the tax unless they can persuade a doctor the operation is being carried out for ‘therapeutic’ reasons.

Hmmm, a chance for ‘backhanders’ to doctors to agree ‘therapeutic’ reasons and the use of ‘I’ll pay cash, no receipts know want I mean doc wink wink nudge nudge’ mentality to avoid VAT in the ever growing black economy avoiding UK’s Sheriff of Nottingham type taxes.
