02/03/2014 - Price Increase on Wines as per Singapore Budget Duty Hike on alcohol
You may have heard already about the changes on alcohol duty which has been officially announced in the Singapore budget last Friday.
With immediate effect, excise duty on alcohol products has been increased by approximately 25%. The new rates for excise duty can be seen online at :
http://www.customs.gov.sg/leftNav/trad/val/List+of+Dutiable+Goods.htm
To summarize the change and effect on prices, the duty on wines has been increased from $ 70 per litre of alcohol to now $ 88.
Per bottle of 750 ml this will relate to an immediate price increase of $ 2 or more, depending on the alcohol content of the wine.
Busy times for all of us as all price lists and menus need to be adjusted.
I personally do not understand this political decision, given the fact that Hong Kong had totally abolished the duty on wines some time ago and is often used as a benchmark in Singapore politics. This will surely have a further negative impact on the competitiveness of Singapore as a wine hub in Asia.
Sad news for our industry.
