VAT action day plea to food outlets
Filed under: Tax
A campaign backed by companies including JD Wetherspoon, Brains, Punch Taverns, Pizza Hut, Subway and Roadchef is backing so-called Tax Parity Day on September 25.
The campaign is pressing for a 5% cut in VAT in a bid to boost economic growth and create jobs.
Campaigner Jacques Borel said: "Our aim is to secure more equal tax treatment for food sold through pubs, restaurants and food service operators, compared to supermarkets, which benefit from a zero VAT rate."
