Tuesday 1st August 2023

With alcohol duty set to increase today (1st August 2023), finance specialists, RIFT, have launched a petition to reinstate the freeze in place since Autumn Budget 2020 to help Britain’s beleaguered pub trade, as the cost of some of our favourite pub tipples is set to climb by as much as £1.30.  

The 5th of August is World Beer Day, but the nation’s pubs could be forgiven for not wanting to celebrate, as today, the Government will remove the freeze on alcohol duty that has been in place since the Autumn Budget 2020.
