to Small Brewers' Relief
The Government is set to increase the tax paid by
some small independent breweries in the UK. This could lead to
brewery closures, and less choice at the bar for you.
CAMRA has joined calls for the Government to think
again – we need your help to persuade them that this is bad for UK
brewing and bad for consumers.
The Treasury has proposed some changes to the Small
Brewers’ Relief scheme – this scheme allows smaller brewers to pay
less tax to compensate for the economies of scale enjoyed by larger
The scheme been instrumental in the brewing boom of
the last two decades.
The changes that the Treasury wants to make will
take away tax relief from the brewers at the smaller end of the
production scale to give more relief to larger ‘small’ brewers –
it’s a ‘reverse Robin Hood’ tax.
This is bad news for small brewers at any time, let
alone coming out of the COVID lockdown.
