Azerbaijan proposes excise taxes on vaping products

Azerbaijan’s government has proposed amendments to its tax code. If approved, the changes would see vaping products and shishas added to the list of excisable goods. The amendment proposes to introduce a 30-manat (approx. £13.37) excise tax on each kilogram of tobacco substitutes and 25-gapiks (approx. 11p) for each unit of disposable vaping products, including shisha.
