Life insurance escapes insurance tax

life insurance

Life insurers are breathing a sigh of relief as details emerge on the increase in insurance premium tax.

Andy Milburn of Munich Re says: “We really do not like the insurance premium tax because we think it stops people buying insurance but are glad that it has not been extended to life insurance.”
