BBPA welcomes new pubs rate review in 2023

The trade association welcomed the announcement of a Business Rates Review today. Pubs pay 2.8% of the entire business rates bill, despite accounting for just 0.5% of business turnover and pay more rates as a percentage of sales than any other sector, meaning reform for business rates has long been needed to support Britain’s pubs. Clarity that the next revaluation will now take place in 2023 is also welcome. As a world-renowned British industry supporting 900,000 jobs, contributing £23 billion to the economy and playing a key role in communities throughout the UK, the BBPA will continue to highlight the case for further support for brewers and pubs.
