Tax rise on strong lagers

1st December 2010

The Treasury has announced that duties on super-strength beers and lagers are to rise next year.

Tax on beers and lager over 7.5% ABV (alcohol by volume) will increase from autumn 2011 although the exact amount will not be known until the March budget, though wine, cider and spirits will not be covered. The announcement coincided with the publication of the government’s public health strategy, targeting preventable illnesses such as alcohol abuse, though health campaigners felt the threshold should be 5% not 7.5% ABV.
