Alcohol Taxation Review – Nov 2010

Where alcohol is concerned, Governments are always on a bit of a cleft stick.  This is succinctly articulated in the recent ‘Review of Alcohol Taxation’ which states that the purpose of the review is to “tackle problem drinking without unfairly penalising responsible drinkers, pubs and important local industries”.   The solution, therefore, is to increase the duty on strong beers (over 7.5% alcohol by volume (abv)) while reducing the duty on beers of 2.8% abv or less.
