Indirect taxes are taxes levied on the goods and services people buy. These include VAT, fuel duty, and tobacco and alcohol duties. Our research looks at the extent to which such taxes are passed on to prices, the demand response such taxes generate and their impact on welfare. Our research also explores the role that advertising plays in influencing choices and the implications of policies that seek to restrict advertising.
