IS YOUR HOTEL PAYING TOO MUCH FOR SKY

UPDATE FOR HOTELS ON SKY

Hotels in Ireland have two types of contracts with Sky. A hotel contract or a Pub and Club’s contract.

Hotel contracts are based on hotel bedroom numbers and Pubs and Clubs contracts are based on the excise duty of the  Publicans license.

We have reviewed many hotels Sky charges and changing contracts can result in annual savings of more than €4000 in some cases.

Regarding Pubs and Clubs contracts as they are based on excise duty, which relates to turnover, when licenses are issued in September 2021 Sky have agreed to backdate their charges for 12 months in line with the excise duty of the license.

Obviously with the impact of COVID-19 turnover has been significantly affected and therefore most hotels on these types of contracts will be due back dated credits from Sky in September and reduced charges going forward.

We provide the followings services.

  1. We will analyse your charges and if we can identify that a change in contract will result in an annual saving, we will arrange that for you.  Our fee will be based on 50% of the annual savings achieved, so if we cannot secure savings for you no charge will apply.

2. We will analyse the credits you have received to date from Sky and make sure they are the appropriate credits, as in some cases the credits have been understated. We will also in September 2021 make sure that all the backdated credits due on Pubs and Clubs accounts are secured and that the reduced charge is applied to the account going forward. Our fee for this service is €150.


Please note we would not expect payment of our fees until your premises is open to the public.
