Vietnam. The government increases the excise tax on beer
For example, in the supermarket chain Citimart the price of beer "333" has increased by 6000 to 226 000 dong per box. Earlier, in May 2015, the chain of Lotte Mart received notification of the increase in selling prices for the production of brewers by 1.7 - 2.7%.
According to the plan, the excise tax will increase to 55% since 31 December 2016, up to 60% since 31December 2017, and up to 65% since 1.01.2018. In accordance with the SCT, companies are obliged to pay the excise tax at two stages: at import and from sales in the domestic market.
Although the annual increase in the excise tax is 5%, it will inevitably affect the cost of production and the price of beer will increase by 7-8% from the current.
Indeed, besides the excise tax, the price of beer has been greatly influenced by the demand. With the New Year coming, the price of a box of beer has been increased from 15,000 to 30,000 dong during the week. According to Le Ngoc Dao, Deputy Head of the Department of Industry and Trade of Ho Chi Minh City, the demand for beer to about 40 million litres is expected, i.e. 30% higher than the average for the month.
