Saudi Arabia imposes e-cigarette tax

A special tax has been levied in Saudi Arabia, as part of government initiatives to reduce a budget deficit. A 100% tax was placed on e-cigarettes and associated products along with a 50% tax on sugared drinks. There are already similar taxes on cigarettes (100%), energy drinks (100%) and fizzy drinks (50%). The new tax came in to force on 18 May.
