HTA announces payment holiday

Published: 30 March 2020

Recognising the difficult period for garden industry businesses through this unprecedented time the HTA has announced a three-month subscription payment holiday for all members.

Members will receive a credit note for 100% of their subscription for the months of April until June. Also, any businesses that apply and are accepted to become new members will be entitled to this three month subscription holiday as well.

Members will receive a credit note, direct debit holiday or offset against an existing balance. 

HTA chairman, James Barnes, commented: “Garden industry businesses are being hard hit by the current Covid-19 situation, in what would ordinarily be the peak trading period for the sector. At a time when financial pressures on businesses are so great, it was unanimously agreed at yesterday’s HTA Board meeting that a 3-month payment subscription holiday for all members would be actioned immediately. 

“We are committed to representing members and seeking the necessary recognition and support for our sector from Government and providing the latest information to allow members to make the necessary business decisions to get through this uncertain and worrying time”.
