It's impossible for a tax like VAT to hurt a company, since it is always passed on to the end consumer.

I don't know just how totally politician-level of utterly stupid one must be in order to not realize that upping the price towards the "consumer" (don't you mean "customer")? by 20% or thereabouts for no particular reason whatsover won't impact sales and thence "hurt a company".
