Bingo halls wait on tax break to offset smoking ban
Operators have called for VAT on bingo takings to be scrapped to offset smoking ban
Bingo operators have called for a VAT tax break to offset the predicted loss
of business from the ban on smoking in their clubs.
The operators have to pay
and a gross profits tax, which they say is unfair, according to The
Rank chief executive Ian Burke said it was time to rectify some of the things
that have ‘survived longer than they ought to have done’.
