SIBA Response to Autumn Statement
Autumn Statement Outlines Mixed Fortunes for the Beer Industry
“Fifteen thousand pubs across the UK will benefit from the announcement that Small Business Rates Relief is to be extended for a further year, something which SIBA has called for together with the BBPA and ALMR.
However the Government are giving with one hand and taking away with the other, as the decision to do away with retail relief will land seventy five per cent of pubs with a £1500 tax increase. SIBA would urge the Chancellor to introduce new measures in next year’s budget to support both British pubs and the growing British brewing industry that supplies them.”
Mike Benner, Managing Director of SIBA, The Society of Independent Brewers
