The new government initiative, Eat Out to Help Out, is now available for restaurants and other establishments serving food for on-premises consumption to sign up too, after going live on Monday 13th July on GOV.UK. The aim of this initiative is to encourage the public to safely return to dining out, as well as save a large number of jobs within the hospitality sector.
Any restaurant, bar, café or other establishment serving food to eat in-house, will be able to offer the customer a 50% reduction, up to a maximum of £10 per person when they dine on certain days through August. The scheme will begin on Monday 3rd August and discounts will be available Monday to Wednesday, until 31st August. Customers will not need a voucher as those establishments that are participating will automatically remove the discount from the bill.
In order to reclaim the discount, businesses simply need claim through an online service which is supported by HMRC. Claims can be made on a weekly basis and will be paid into bank accounts within five working days.
All businesses that sign up to the scheme will receive a window sticker and can download promotional items from GOV.UK and a searchable restaurant finder tool will be available to the public before the scheme launches on 3 August.
