The Government intends to introduce a new Small Producers Relief to replace the existing Small Brewers Relief. The new relief will include beer, cider, wine and spirits-based drinks below 8.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). It aims to encourage innovation and remove barriers growth for small producers.

This change will benefit hundreds of small producers across the UK by giving them access to reduce rates for the first time, across a wider range of products.
