20% Added to Cosmetic Surgeries in the UK


It was just a little while ago when all of us in Canada could enjoy paying less for Toronto BOTOX, injectable fillers and other cosmetic treatments because only 5% tax was added. But since the tax laws were changed, we now pay HST of 13% for everything, including surgical procedures such as breast augmentation. Well, it looks like residents in the UK will also have to pay more for their cosmetic surgical procedures if Mr. Osborne has his way.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne (what a title that is!) has submitted a proposal to add their form of tax, called VAT, to all cosmetic surgery procedures. While BOTOX and other non-surgical aesthetic medical treatments already have VAT added to them, the new law will include more invasive treatments such as breast augmentation and tummy tucks. Anything that is performed for aesthetic and not therapeutic reasons will be included, therefore the onus is on the patient to provide this proof.

We may think that Ontario HST is a lot at 13%, but VAT in the UK is a whopping 20%! That means if they pay for a filler treatment of $650, they’ll need to pay an extra $130 for tax alone, making the final total $780. Yikes!
