We have published the latest edition of our popular Pink Book: Legislation for tourist accommodation and attractions, which outlines the regulatory requirements for accommodation providers and attractions in England.

Now in its twelfth edition, The Pink Book provides guidance on topics from food hygiene and health and safety to business management and tax.

New content in the latest edition includes:

  • a new section on recent environmental protection laws
  • an update on allergen labelling
  • information on upcoming tipping legislation
  • guidance on the requirements when employing someone from outside the UK, including people from the European Union, and more.
