ANNUAL REPORT 2018

The launch of SIBA’s first ever strategic plan in 2015 set a road map for the Society for the next three years. The primary objective of this annual report is to set out the impact of the many projects and activities we have carried out in the last twelve months to give members a clear view of the work we have been doing on their behalf.

Small Breweries’ Relief

Support SIBA’s campaign to defend and promote the benefits of Small Breweries’ Relief.

We campaign to protect and defend Small Breweries’ Relief whereby smaller breweries benefit from excise duty relief up to 50% to enable them to compete with much bigger brewers. Our members typically invest the relief in jobs, marketing and capital investment. The scheme, launched in 2002, is essential to many hundreds of small businesses and has been a major factor in creating the exciting and diverse brewing industry we have in the UK today.

There is mounting pressure from other groups for a Government review of the scheme. SIBA is opposed to a review at this time as we think it is unnecessary and would lead to unhelpful uncertainty for Britain’s 1,400+ independent brewers.

We do, however, believe that the scheme could be evolved to benefit more independent breweries through some simple and uncontroversial changes.
