Restaurants Association of Ireland spokesman Neven Maguire championing the benefits of keeping that 9% VAT rate.
The #KeepVat9 campaign is being launched this morning.
RAI Chief Executive, Adrian Cummins sez:
“VAT at 9% has had a positive effect on all aspects of the restaurant sector specifically, but also the wider tourist industry generally. This is why the RAI fervently believes it would be foolhardy to get rid of it. Reducing VAT to this level is a real success story so the RAI is sending a clear message to Government saying Keep VAT at 9%”
