There are no taxes levied specifically on UK mined coal. This activity is subject to the UK's general taxation regimes such as VAT and Corporation Tax. However, it is not possible to say how much revenue these taxes raise from UK mined coal, as the number of companies involved is below the Government’s threshold for disclosing tax liabilities.
