Hospitality businesses are being urged to call on the Government to make a reduced rate of VAT for hospitality businesses permanent.

Trade body UKHospitality is calling on businesses to lobby their MPs to call for the cut, which it says will be a lifeline for the hospitality sector.

“It has been a busy summer period for many of you and we are now approaching the summer bank holiday which will be an opportune time to remind MPs about the importance of the VAT cut and ask for their support in urging the Government to make a reduced rate of VAT for hospitality businesses permanent,” says UKHospitality CEO Kate Nicholls in a letter to members.

“With a mountain of debt and difficult trading conditions, this cut is a vital lifeline for many hospitality businesses in helping to manage business costs and attract customers. This ask has therefore been central to many of our discussions with Government, and the team at UKHospitality are now in the final stages of developing our campaign.”           

As the Government’s Autumn Statement draws closer, UKHospitality says it will be ramping up it VAT campaigning activity and ask that businesses  make use of its lobbying tool to write to their MP to press the importance of the VAT cut for businesses.
