Duty to be charged on heat-not-burn tobacco products

Devices to be added to Tobacco Products Duty Act from July

Duty will be charged on heat-not-burn tobacco devices from next month.

The Isle of Man Government has announced heated tobacco products will be introduced as a category to the Tobacco Products Duty Act from 1 July.

The battery-powered products are used to heat tobacco, turning it into an aerosol.

The items are similar to e-cigarettes, but this classification excludes e-liquids and vape as they don't typically contain tobacco.
