Taoiseach rules out zero per cent VAT rate for hospitality sector

 

The Taoiseach has ruled out a zero per cent VAT rate for the hospitality sector.

Leo Varadkar has said it would go against EU rules.

However, he's suggested the rate could be lowered by the next government.

Yesterday Junior Minister Brendan Griffin called for the VAT rate for hospitality to be temporarily reduced to zero per cent.
