Government announces cuts to business rates for pubs.

27/01/2020

Pub owners will be pulling a celebratory pint after the Chancellor announced he would be slashing their bills by £1,000.

In a fresh demonstration of the government’s support for communities up and down the country, Sajid Javid confirmed the new Pubs Relief would be introduced in April, with £1,000 being taken off the business rates bills of small pubs who qualify.

As many as 18,000 pubs are expected to benefit from the discount.

The relief will come on top of an extended retail discount, which smaller pubs are also eligible for. Those eligible for both reliefs will get up to £13,500 off their annual bills.

The Pubs Relief is part of a package of measures that is being introduced by the government to support local high streets. From April this year:

  • small shops and cafes will see their bills halved as the retail discount, currently a third off, is extended to 50%
  • music venues and cinemas will become eligible for the retail discount
  • a £1,500 discount for local newspapers office space will be extended for a further five years
