Reduce the VAT rate for salons to 9% and lower the VAT threshold to Nil

Petition Details

Level the trading field for salons across the UK by lowering the VAT threshold to Nil so all pay VAT, and reducing the VAT rate to 9%, to give the sector a chance to recover and grow.

Additional Information

We believe the current VAT threshold is too high, and some businesses deliberately trade just under this to avoid VAT and other costs.

Ireland has had a reduced rate of 9% for salons, to support the sector, and we want the UK Government to implement this here.
