On 21st July 2020, the Government announced the long awaited outcome of their review into Small Brewers Relief and it didn't go well for us here at Lincoln Green.
In a strange reverse-Robin Hood move, we saw the threshold at which Small Brewers Relief is reduced come down from 5,000 hectolitres to 2,100 hectolitres, giving more benefit to larger brewers whilst seeing smaller brewers pay more beer duty.
I don't disagree that change was needed; brewers of all sizes simply pay too much tax, with the UK paying the second highest levels of beer tax in Europe. Reducing the duty level for larger brewers simply shouldn't have seen smaller brewers paying the price.
You can help.
