Fighting for … fairer tax, VAT and National Insurance
- A fairer VAT system for salons and barbershops with employees (compared to those with self-employed chair/room renters).
- A lower VAT rate for labour-intensive service industries, such as salons/barbershops.
- Tiered VAT rates so a large VAT bill is not payable as soon as the threshold is reached.
- A fairer National Insurance system so employers do not have to pay 13% contributions while those with chair/room renters pay nothing.
