Ahead of the Budget later this year, we're asking beer drinkers and pub goers to take action to save our pubs from sinking. While it's the publicans and brewers that pay the tax bills, it's ultimately consumers like you who will pay the price as publicans and brewers are forced to put up prices or go bust. 

 

Typically when you spend £4 on a pint of beer in a pub....

  • 15p is business rates

  • 49p is beer tax

  • 67p is VAT

  • And a further 15p is other taxes

 

Pubs are vital to our local communities, our economy, and to the British way of life. However, they are struggling to stay afloat under the heavy burden of tax including beer duty and business rates. Tax now makes up more than a third of the cost of a pub pint!

 

Without your support, our valued local pubs will continue to close.
