French look for égalité in VAT rate

French look for égalité in VAT rate

French hotel and catering associations are lobbying their government to reduce the VAT levied on restaurant meals from 20.6% to just 14%.

At the moment, fast-food restaurants, take-aways and contract catering services in France enjoy a reduced VAT rate of 5.5%. The Fédération Nationale de l'Industrie Hôtelière and the association of public restaurants (SNRPO) argue that this two-tier system distorts competition and penalises restaurants, bars and cafés.

They claim a middle rate of 14% for restaurants would create more than 12,000 new jobs.
