Think tank: Pubs need less tax and regulation

Think tank warns government about tax and regulation concerns for pubs

A freeze on beer duty and cut in business taxes is desperately needed to
protect the pub industry, according to a think-tank.

The Institute for Public Policy Research’s study found that community pubs in
particular are suffering from red-tape and tax burdens, reported the
FT.

‘The government must stop using a one size fits all approach to licensed
premises, which is killing off our community pubs,’ said its senior research
fellow and author of the report Rick Muir.

Larger pub chains have also recently complained about taxation on the
industry, with Wetherspoons’ chairman Tim Martin knocking the government’s
stance on tax and employee rules for hurting pubs.
