The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) met with HM Treasury officials to make representations for the brewing and pub sector ahead of the Budget on October 27th.

The BBPA highlighted the vital role pubs and brewing play in supporting over 900,000 jobs in communities across the UK and contributing £26 billion to the UK economy across towns, villages, and cities.  It told the Government that it must invest in pubs and brewers who have a leading role to play in the recovery, and underlined the importance of co-investment from Government in the form of a fairer tax burden and more level playing field with other European nations post-Brexit.
Emma McClarkin, Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said, “As we count down the days to the Budget, it was very productive holding a meeting with HM Treasury to further make the case for investment in our sector in the form of fairer taxation.

“Investing in our brewers and pubs is investing in our communities and society to build back better. In return, we will create jobs, boost the local economy and help our communities reconnect and unite again.

“If the Government is serious about levelling up, it must get serious about reducing the tax burdens on our sector.”
