Hot Take – Away Food

The European Court of Justice has heard a number of cases concerning hot take-away food. All of which were from Germany. It was held that the supply of hot take-away food should be subject to the lower rate of VAT. Here in the UK that should be zero rate. However, because there is no guarantee that UK Authorities will uphold the German cases so certain larger firms of accountants are bringing pressure to bear.

Various legal opinions are being sought and once the outcome of these is known we will be able to advise and assist with any retrospective claims thought to be worthwhile. Our fees would be on a no win – no fee basis. A fee would also be payable by us to yourselves.

You may wish to begin identifying clients who may be affected. These will include fish and chip shops, burger bars, pizza and kebab, Chinese and Indian take – aways.

We will keep you updated as to progress but in the meantime if you would like to discuss this please give us a call.
