Bar­bers snip over VAT rise

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

HAIR­DRESSERS are set to protest against VAT rate changes that they claim will crip­ple the in­dus­try.

The Hair­dress­ing Coun­cil of Ire­land is call­ing on sa­lon staff to take to the streets in re­sponse to the Bud­get move for rates to rise from 9% to 13.5%.

A spokesman said: “This VAT in­crease will only serve to mi­grate val­ued clients into the al­ready very ac­tive black mar­ket.”

A peace­ful protest is ar­ranged for Oc­to­ber 23 out­side Le­in­ster House.
