  • NOffLA Welcomes Department of Health Public Health Initiatives
    Environmental Health Officers and will restrict advertising promoting selling or supplying of alcohol at reduced prices or free of charge We believe that this will go a long way to ensuring Ireland has a more responsible relationship with alcohol Our Association also welcomes the news that the voluntary Code of Practice for the sale and display of alcohol in Ireland will no longer be used to regulate the sector We hope that should a statutory Code of Practice fail to deliver structural separation that the Departments of Health and Justice will stand by their commitment to review the Code of Practice after two years and enact Section 9 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act 2008 Structural separation of alcohol products in mixed trading premises is of paramount importance as it will allow consumers to make the conscious decision about whether or not to purchase alcohol Structural separation will also mean that children will no longer be confronted with alcohol every time they enter a supermarket NOffLA commends Minister Alex White and the Department of Health for their hard work and commitment in developing these initiatives These measures will go a long way in providing for the responsible retail of alcohol in

  • NOffLA calls on Government to save remaining businesses and jobs in the independent off-licence sector
    of the survival of the independent off licence sector To date no efforts have been made by government to stem business closures and job losses in this sector Since 2008 33 independent off licences have ceased trading 12 of these have closed in the last ten months accounting for almost 60 jobs Based on the current rate of closures NOffLA expects a further 20 25 independent off licences to cease trading in 2014 In the last ten months almost 60 jobs have been lost in the independent off licence sector 3000 in total since 2008 These figures haven t made the headlines yet but if we were to announce the creation of 60 jobs that would certainly make headline news The government must recognise the benefits of job retention as well as job creation A number of factors have caused these closures and job losses but the biggest causes are the disproportionally high rates of alcohol taxes and the repeal of the Groceries Order which has allowed alcohol to be sold at discounted and below cost prices It is our hope that government will see the value of the Independent off licence sector and introduce measures such as a reintroduction of a ban on below cost selling that will ensure the revival and growth of the independent off licence sector as opposed to the severe deterioration that we are seeing now said Ms Jones ENDS For further information Karen White Hume Brophy on behalf of NOffLA 086 771 3326 Paul Gordon Hume Brophy on behalf of NOffLA 086 012 1601 About NOffLA NOffLA was established in 1991 and represents independent specialist off licences across Ireland The Association has 315 members which represents 5 300 jobs in 26 counties NOffLA works to promote the responsible sale marketing and consumption of alcohol

  • Excise increase on alcohol will drive out of State retailing
    about the increase in excise duty on alcohol Chairperson of NOffLA Evelyn Jones said This is an extremely irresponsible decision by Government which will put independent off licences under severe pressure reignite out of State retailing and lead to another increase in illicit alcohol trading Alcohol taxes in Ireland are now amongst the highest in Europe Prior to this budget we already had the highest taxed for wine the second highest for cider third highest for spirits and the fourth highest for beer As a result of Budget 2013 Excise on wine was 576 above the EU average According to Jones the government may be in breach of EU competition law due to the rates of excise on alcohol products The Lisbon Treaty clearly states that no EU country can impose internal taxes on imports which would afford indirect protection to other products this is exactly what is happening in Ireland with wine The significant increases in taxation on wine has led to a situation where only industrially produced wine can be found at the lower price points The quality of the product is being reduced because of extremely high taxes that are completely out of sync with our European neighbours Consider a standard 8 00 bottle of wine in Ireland Over half of this price is attributable to tax excise and VAT with only 0 12 of the price actually accountable to the wine itself after today s increase The government is using tax as a means to reform Ireland s relationship with alcohol However what is really happening is that people are just consuming poorer qualities of alcohol because of the huge tax content We call on Minister Alex White to bring forward his proposals to regulate the alcohol sector Our sector hopes these measures will address the

  • 11 Independent Off-Licences have closed in eight months
    gone to the wall each month and over 60 jobs have been lost in a relatively short period of time The sector is on its knees and within a few years will have died out completely Independent specialist off licences represent a traditional family trade in Ireland with some businesses spanning 8 generations the oldest one operating since 1805 They operate in the heart of their communities and employ the highest standards of responsibility when retailing alcohol Large multiple retailers on the other hand use alcohol as a footfall driver and sell alcohol in an extremely irresponsible manner The deep discounting of alcohol that is undertaken has had a very damaging societal effect on this country and we need government to introduce measures to eradicate this practice she said NOffLA expects a further 5 businesses to close by the end of December 2013 and a further 20 25 are expected to close in 2014 Since 2008 a total of 3 000 jobs have been lost in the independent off trade sector Independent off licences held 21 8 of the market share in 2012 but it is estimated that they will hold only 16 market share in 2014 Speaking about Budget 2014 Ms Jones said Independent retailers have had to struggle with the excise increases brought about by Budget 2013 These increases had a destructive impact on independent off licences who were already experiencing significant declines in sales and turnover Raising excise duty on alcohol is too often looked upon as a quick source of Exchequer funding however such repeated measures have instead resulted in a dramatic reduction in taxable consumption and a subsequent rise in the Black Economy Should Budget 2014 increase excise duties we can expect a much higher number of closures perhaps more than 30 It is difficult
