Endorsement: The Prince of Wales has worn the firm’s ‘evening slippers’ at red carpet events
The Prince of Wales’s shoe store on Savile Row has become the latest business to call for the controversial “tourist tax” on international visitors to be scrapped.
Arthur Sleep co-founder Jahangir Azam said the ban on VAT-free purchases was putting the UK at a “huge disadvantage” compared to other European cities.
“We should create a more dynamic and attractive economy for foreign investors and tourists,” he said.
Arthur Sleep’s clients include Robert De Niro and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.
The Prince of Wales has worn the brand’s ‘evening shoes’ at events such as the premiere of the James Bond film No Time to Die.
Arthur Sleep joins more than 400 businesses who have backed the Mail’s campaign to restore duty-free shopping for tourists.
The Autumn Statement later this month calls on the Government to launch a review of the tax.
