Axe the Reading Tax

Our CEO David Shelley is among more than 40 publishers calling on the Chancellor, Sajid Javid, to #AxetheReadingTax and end the 20% tax on digital publications. We’ve signed an open letter, which you can read in full on The Bookseller, urging the government to ditch this regressive and outdated tax. If you would like to support the campaign, visit the website at, where you can sign the petition and where you will find a template letter to send to your MP.
