  • Government decision to increase excise on wine will drive out of State retailing
    flow of cross border shopping Wine sales this year have already dropped by 4 percent and we can expect this figure to drop even further on the back of today s announcement This increase will also have a detrimental impact on independent off licences and on the alcohol retail sector as a whole because it will drive people to purchase their alcohol across the border We will see business closures because of this increase Fortunately for Irish consumers this increase will not lead to alcohol price hikes in independent off licences as retailers have already bought in their pre Christmas trading stock Hopefully this measure will go some way to stemming the flow of cross border pre Christmas trading Large multiple retailers are more than capable of absorbing increases as they can engage in below cost selling practices but for already fragile and vulnerable independent off licences this puts them under even more pressure According to Jones Alcohol taxes in this country are high enough and are currently amongst the highest in Europe We currently have the highest level for sparkling wine and the third highest rate for wine in the whole of Europe NOffLA which represents 315 independent community

  • National Off-Licence Association (NOffLA) strongly opposes pre-Budget calls for tax hikes on alcohol
    sales Evelyn Jones Chairperson of NOffLA said NOffLA is strongly opposed to any additional taxes being imposed on the independent off licence sector and this includes the publicans pre budget proposal issued today This move would put the independent off licence sector which is already a fragile and vulnerable sector out of business overnight There is absolutely no way that the independent sector could sustain this tax There has been a significant shift in alcohol sales to the off trade but this has not been to the benefit of the independent off licence sector In four years we have lost almost 3 000 jobs in this sector and witnessed 75 business closures We expect over twenty more to close next year This sector which works tirelessly to promote the responsible retail of alcohol is becoming a dying breed and this tax would certainly speed up the process next year In NOffLA s pre budget submission our association called for retention of the current level of alcohol excise duty a scaling of off trade licencing fees based on turnover and an introduction of a ban on below cost selling said Jones News Press Archive 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007

  • NOffLA calls on Government not to increase excise duty in Budget 2013
    increases as they can engage in below cost selling practices Taxes in Ireland are high enough and are currently amongst the highest in Europe For example we have the fourth highest excise level for beer and spirits the highest level for sparkling wine the third highest rate for wine and the second highest level for cider in the whole of Europe Government would be better placed introducing a ban on below cost selling Currently retailers can and do sell alcohol at below cost levels The Exchequer loses out significantly because of this practice If this practice was banned it would ensure that retailers cannot reclaim 23 of the cost of the loss leader in their VAT return saving the State an average of 21m each year said Jones NOffLA which represents 315 independent community based specialist off licences across Ireland has witnessed 75 business closures in the last four years Based on the current rate of closures NOffLA expects a further 25 30 businesses to cease trading in 2013 According to Jones Something must be done to protect this specialist trade If steps are not taken urgently the independent off licence sector will disappear entirely with a loss of jobs
