LA warns of concerns regarding BBPA Benchmarking Report
The BBPA released “Running a pub – A guide to costs for tied tenants and lessees 2022” in late May 2022. It is the sixth edition of their benchmarking guides, the first edition published in 2015 with no guides produced in 2020 and 2021 as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic.
At The Licensees Association, following consultation with our members, we have a number of concerns relating to the current guide which we would like to see answered. This report does not seek to completely undermine the benchmarking, however, considering the importance of the guide and it’s use by our members and others in rent re-views we do feel that the opportunity should be afforded to the BBPA to clarify certain issues we will raise to ensure that the guide is robust and where we feel it is wanting to allow the BBPA to amend or warn caution.
