Example of applying the cap to a £100 bill
A group of four diners (2 adults and 2 children) spend £100, including £10 on alcoholic beverages.
Bill before discount £100.00
Amount spent on alcohol £10.00
Amount that discount can be applied to £90.00
Uncapped discount to customers
(50% of 90) £45.00
Capped discount (£10 per diner) £40.00
Bill after discount is applied £60.00
The uncapped discount is £45, which is £11.25 per diner and is above the £10 per diner cap.
The discount is therefore capped at £40.
Example of applying a discount
without the £10 cap
One person dines at your establishment and the total bill is £4.
No alcohol is purchased.
Total Bill £4
Uncapped discount to customers (50% of 4) £2
Bill after discount is applied £2
The £10 per diner cap does not apply
to this claim.
