STANDON CALLING news: The live events industry needs your help!⠀…

Latest update from Standon Calling

The live events industry needs your help!⠀

To support our industry during this crisis the Government reduced the rate of VAT on ticket sales to 5%. Unfortunately with no live events happening over the last year, the industry has yet to benefit from the scheme.⠀

Now the government want to increase VAT back to 20% at a time when the industry is trying to recover and would benefit from the scheme. ⠀

This increase in VAT will impact the entire ecosystem – the crews, the artists, venues and all employees – just when we need help to survive and recover the most.⠀

Increasing VAT by 400% at a time when the live music industry needs crucial support would be catastrophic for our recovery.⠀

We kindly ask you to write you your local MP to urge them to #KeepVATat5. Download the letter template here bit.ly/3jbkW5t and personalise as you see fit. ⠀

Please also share this post to spread the word.⠀

Thank you for your ongoing support 🙏
