Brewery cuts food and drink prices as it calls for lower taxes
6:17pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A BREWERY visitor centre is reducing its food and drink prices for the day as it joins calls for VAT for the sector to be cut.
The Black Sheep Brewery, in Masham, North Yorkshire, will be reducing prices of food, beer and beverages by 7.5 per cent at its visitor centre on September 25, for Tax Parity Day.
Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director at the brewery, said: “Tax is a huge issue for our sector and the results of the disparity which exists can, at least partly, be seen in the changing habits of people who are shunning pubs to eat and drink in the home.
“Tax Parity Day is a great opportunity to highlight the benefits of a tax cut. “They say there are only two things which are guaranteed in this life - death and taxes - but it is certainly a healthier economy if the level of taxes paid increases because of a system which encourages growth, rather than companies paying higher taxes and contracting.”
