Letter to the Chancellor about Budget 2021 from the nation’s publicans

Pubs and publicans need proper direct support from the Government in Budget 2021.

This means closure grants until pubs can open indoors again, then 5% VAT on ALL pub sales and no business rates till April 2022.

The Government must listen to people who actually run our pubs – so the Campaign for Pubs is coordinating a Budget 2021 letter on behalf of pubs and publicans.

If you’re a publican, pub manager or pub owner (including micropubs, taphouses etc) then please sign the letter below with the name of your pub.

The Chancellor needs to listen to pubs and publicans and #SupportOurPubs in Budget 2021!

Dear Chancellor,

Open letter to the Chancellor from publicans: Budget 2021 – your chance to save our nation’s pubs by providing support and targeting it appropriately

We, all UK publicans, the people who actually run our nation’s world famous pubs, are writing to you to urge you to support pubs in the budget next week and to do so properly and directly, targeting support to ensure it actually helps pubs and those who run them and rely on them.

Despite the fact that the Government has announced provisional dates when pubs may be able to open, pubs, publicans and their families urgently need support, simply to be able to get through till the summer and the possibility of indoor opening without unprofitable restrictions and also to survive longer term.

The situation for pubs and publicans is very serious. Many publicans are in significant and rising debt, many cannot pay VAT bills and already pubs are closing and families are facing hardship.

Pubs closed in lockdown still have to meet significant fixed costs, especially in the case of many thousands of pubs that are burdened with unsympathetic property owners who are still charging unreasonable, and in some cases full, property costs such as rent; something the Government has failed to stop.

Pubs also continue to be legally obliged to pay many taxes, despite the Government having closed them and despite having had no trade for many months and with restricted trade even when allowed to open. Pubs should not be forced to pay full licensing fees (and should be refunded) and there should be no late-night levy costs being imposed.

Unless the UK Government (and devolved administrations) urgently provides adequate (meaning greater) support for pubs now, then pubs that have survived centuries and two world wars are at risk of permanent closure, due the cycle of lockdowns and restrictions imposed by the Government and the fact that the Government has not properly or adequately supported pubs through this tumultuous time.

Somehow we will also need to find the money to restock – for most pubs will cost at least £1000, and much more for larger pubs. At the moment, many of us cannot even imagine how we can do this. So we need support now, or many pubs will literally be unable to afford to reopen.

Support needed NOW

The Budget first of all needs to provide support for pubs now, all are currently close, but many will remain so past April until May 17th at the earliest, and all will be restricted by table service until at least June 21st.

So increased support must be announced in the budget, enough to truly preserve pubs and support those who run them until they can viably trade again – which means trading indoors, without curfews and with households allowed to mix, and without being forced to only offer table service (which stops a pub being a pub).

Ongoing support

The Budget also needs to provide a package of ongoing support to get pubs through and back to full sustainability. Many pubs and publicans have reported that they will not be back to profitability until well into 2022, such is the scale of their losses. So if you want to save our pubs and give real hope to our publicans, you need to commit in this Budget to support them until they can fully recover.

Support ALL pubs – and support pubs DIRECTLY

All pubs are important and need support and we urge you to support them all and to do so directly.

It was grossly unfair and completely arbitrary that last year larger pubs, with a rateable value of over £51,000, were excluded from grants. This was disastrous for independent publicans running such pubs.

Also, thus far in this crisis, many wet-led pubs have been amongst the worst hit and have had the least support. These pubs, like all pubs, are not even being permitted to do takeaway beer and cider and for pubs that do not do food takeaway, this means no trade at all for such pubs. Plus many wet led pubs are smaller and don’t have outside drinking areas (big enough or at all) that would make outdoor only opening viable. Such pubs were also excluded from any support from the existing 5% VAT on food and accommodation and excluded from the Eat Out to Help Out (EOTHO) scheme and then directly discriminated against, without evidence, by the discredited substantial meal rule, which led to many being unable to open at all in December, or if they tried, being quickly forced to close again.

Pubs also need direct support – which means as well as further grants being available until we can reopen indoors again and with household mixing, we need a continuation of the business rates holiday and an extension of the 5% VAT rate to cover all pub sales including those of drink.

So we urge you to support ALL pubs with a VAT cut for ALL pub sales. That is crucial, as well as another business rates holiday 2021/22 for all hospitality.

Yet there are strong rumours circulating that instead of a VAT cut for all pub sales that would directly help these pubs and the people who run then, you may be considering indirect measures via beer duty changes that would instead funnel millions of pounds of tax relief to global brewers and pubcos, and the investment and hedge funds (many offshore) that own and back them. Given the very serious situation the UK now faces, both economically and fiscally, it would be wholly wrong and utterly misplaced for the Government to provide millions of pounds of tax relief to supermarkets, global brewers and the largest pubcos, when it is UK pubs and publicans that need direct help most seriously and urgently.

So we urge you to focus your support directly on the pubs and publicans who desperately need it, and not on global brewers, offshore pubcos, hedge funds and supermarkets who do not.

Measures needed from the UK Government

These are the key things needed for pubs from Budget 2021:

Measures for pubs

  • Continued and increased closure grants until pubs can open indoors, with household mixing and no curfew.
  • A statutory code for landlord/tenant negations to deal with all commercial rent, including a statutory right to a rent review for all tenants.
  • There must also be an extension on the moratorium of evictions of tenants.
  • Business rates holiday for 2021-22 with a commitment to implement a new and much fairer overall system from April 2022.
  • VAT of 5% on all on-trade (only) sales for 2021-22. All pubs, including wet-led pubs, to get support through lower VAT, not just those that sell food (or provide overnight accommodation).
  • 50% written off all hospitality Bounce Back loans, due to the extended period of closure which is very significantly beyond what was expected/predicted when they were offered.
  • Reduce (or better still scrap) deferred VAT bills for hospitality. Businesses cannot and should not be asked to pay business taxes when the Government has stopped them trading.
  • Flexible furlough extended until all restrictions on hospitality are fully lifted.
  • Clarification of how the Job Retention Bonus will be honored.

Measures to help breweries/supply chain

  • A tailored package of support, including business rates relief for small brewers and other suppliers, whose businesses are threatened by pubs being closed.
  • Scrapping the proposed changes to small brewer’s beer duty rate relief which will damage and close many small independent craft breweries.

So please save our nation’s pubs – and target the support where it needs to go!

We urge you to really understand the grave situation that pubs and publicans are now in, and to deliver a package of support in Budget 2021 that allows pubs to have a realistic chance to trade their way out of this awful situation, to enable them to pay off debts and to re-establish a stable and sustainable income for pubs, publicans and their families.

This means the direct and targeted support listed here, not general cuts in beer duty and not schemes that will only help some hospitality venues and would discriminate against thousands of our nation’s local pubs.

We hope that you will take this opportunity to show you are on the side of the Great British Pub, those who actually run them and those who visit and value them. The future of thousands of our world-famous pubs is in your hands.

Yours sincerely,
