Are you aware of recent government updates effecting your business?

The Government has amended the Package Travel Regulations recently and there have been a number of changes that may impact on tourism businesses, even those who’s activities were previously not covered. 

Even businesses that simply recommend other businesses to customers could be required to obtain insolvency protection. 

It is important to note that it is a criminal offense not to comply with some of the requirements of the new regulations.

The Tourism Alliance has produced a guidance paper and a new Question and Answer document which you may find helpful.
