Pasty Tax Defeat
3:01pm 12th November 2012
Pirate FM has learnt some Cornish bakeries are giving in to the Pasty Tax.
They had switched off hot cabinets, to avoid being hit by the twenty percent VAT hike on food that is kept warm.
But now they are turning them back on because of a drop in sales.
The Treasury reversed plans to slap twenty percent on all hot takeaway snacks in May.
Instead, the tax only applies to food served straight from the oven or kept hot.3:01pm 12th November 2012
