Pubs pay 2.8% of the total rates bill, yet contribute only 0.5% of rate-paying businesses turnover. To really help pubs, the government should increase rate relief to £5,000 per year, every year, until a full and fair review of business rates has taken place. Pub-specific business rates relief amounts to £25m, but this is wiped out by a 3.9% increase in beer duty, which will cost pubs £47m this year alone.feedback
