Please could you support your local microbrewery by signing the below petition:
Petition (click link):
The Treasury has announced changes to Small Brewers Relief (SBR) – the progressive tax system that has revolutionised UK brewing. These changes will reduce the 50% duty threshold from 5,000hl to 2,100hl: small breweries will have to pay more duty, whilst larger breweries could pay the same or less.
The deadline for signing the petition is the 9th November 2020.
We should help our microbreweries in this matter because if the larger brewers can move the goalposts to suit their bank accounts, then perhaps the larger pub co’s could do the same to micropubs, by asking us to pay more tax.
Thank you for your support.
