  • NOffLA CALLS ON THE GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT THE RESPONSIBLE SALE & CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL
    still in the dark as to how the Minister for Health proposes to introduce Minimum Unit Pricing when it is still currently with the European Court of Justice and we have been awaiting a statutory code of practice on the retail of alcohol in the coming weeks since March Meanwhile our sector which upholds the highest standards in the responsible retail of alcohol continues to lose out to many large multiples and mixed traders who sell alcohol at dangerous and irresponsible prices and promotions NOffLA welcomed the above measures upon their announcement given their potential to benefit both the consumer and the responsible retailer Our sector is on the brink of failure due to a combination to irresponsible practices by supermarkets and consecutive unfair and disproportionate excise duty increases Addressing the pricing and retail of alcohol has the capacity to level the playing field for all retailers and provide a lifeline to an integral part of the community Of course by the time these measures come into effect many of us sadly may no longer be in business due to the crippling levels of excise duty we pay on our sole product Our research shows us that 58 of independent

  • PRESS RELEASE - Almost 60% of independent Off Licences across Ireland face the risk of closure in 2015
    staff go as a direct consequence of the increases in excise duty in Budget 2013 2014 If excise duty is increased in Budget 2015 61 of independent off licences would reduce staff 56 would hire staff if Budget 2013 and 2014 excise duties were reversed 33 would increase staff wages if Budget 2013 and 2014 excise duties were reversed Budget 2013 and Budget 2014 when combined introduced substantive increases in the alcohol excise duty of beer and cider 43 spirits 33 and wine 56 Ireland currently has the highest tax on wine in the EU the second highest on cider and third highest on spirits and beer For example 4 87 from every 9 00 bottle of wine 54 sold goes to the Exchequer compared to Spain Italy or Germany where there is no excise duty Evelyn Jones Chairperson NOffLA said The results of the 2014 member s survey starkly illustrate the impact of current Government policy and how it is leading to the destruction of local businesses all across the country Increasing excise duty does not discourage alcohol consumption rather it contributes to unemployment promotes criminal activity and removes all public health controls NOffLA members are highly trained and responsible local retailers that contribute to their communities through direct investment and local employment We are calling on the Government to reintroduce a ban on below cost selling of alcohol and provide security to the 92 000 jobs associated with the alcohol industry while ensuring a more effective means of reducing alcohol consumption We believe the Government has the power to do something positive for independent businesses all across Ireland While still operating in a challenging economic climate NOffLA members are committed to local communities and have clearly stated a desire to invest and continue to encourage the responsible consumption
