Tax Gap of Heated Tobacco Products in Spain

Currently heated tobacco is not defined in the tax code and is taxed under the category of “other smoking tobacco.” A mixed excise tax system is applied to other smoking tobacco products and hence heated tobacco. The ad-valorem excise rate since 2020 is 28.4% of the retail sales price and the minimum excise is EUR 22 per kilogram.
