Tax Equality Day – Pubs and bars cut prices for a day

As part of a campaign to permanently reduce VAT, over 15,000 pubs, bars and restaurants, including more than 900 Wetherspoons are cutting their prices by 7.5% today.

This campaign, lead by Jacques Borel is intended to show the benefits that a VAT cut could have in the hospitality industry.

The campaign highlights that a reduction in the level of VAT over a longer time period will allow growth and the creation of jobs in the sector.

Similar campaigns by Mr Borel have previously managed to get VAT cuts in a number of other European countries including France and Germany.

Whether the government will ever agree to the cut remains to be seen, but make sure you head down to your local participating pub or bar today and benefit from the reduced prices.
