United Kingdom Inflation September 2020

United Kingdom: Inflation increases in September

Consumer prices rose a seasonally-adjusted 0.41% in September over the previous month, contrasting the 0.42% fall logged in August. The rebound in price pressures was largely driven by rising prices for recreation and culture, and clothing and footwear. Prices for restaurants and hotels also rose markedly due to the end of the government’s Eat Out to Help Out discount scheme.

Inflation rose to 0.5% in September, up from August’s 0.2%, but still well below the Bank of England’s 2.0% target. Annual average inflation fell to 1.1% in September (August: 1.2%). Core inflation rose to 1.3% from August’s 0.9%.
