HMT launches consultation on small brewers relief
Released 07 January 2021
Following the first stage review, HM Treasury (HMT) has launched a consultation exploring the technical issues associated with reforming Small Brewers Relief (SBR).
SBR is a tax relief which gives small brewers reduced rates of beer duty. At Budget 2018, the Government announced it would review the relief following feedback from brewers that it was limiting growth and distorting the market.
The consultation runs until 4 April 2021.
