Keeping VAT at 9% benefits the hospitality sector and has a knock on effect for all those linked with these industries. The hospitality industries collectively want VAT at 9% extended in Budget 2018 and beyond.

Using all information available, we will highlight how retaining the VAT at 9% will continue to sharpen our competitive edge while sustaining and creating employment in the food and tourism industries.

We would appreciate your support for the reduced VAT rate at 9%.
The hospitality industries do not exist as islands. They are intrinsically linked to so many other businesses in Ireland.

What Our Political Leaders have said:

“I have no plans to change the 9pc VAT rate in the next Budget but of course any change would be for subsequent ministers after that”

Minister for Finance
