Budget 2017 – Clarity On 3.9 Per Cent (£130 Million) Beer Duty Rise

The British Beer & Pub Association has issued a statement clarifying the impact on beer duty of Chancellor Philip Hammond’s Budget announcement yesterday.

“The Chancellor announced that there are to be ‘no changes to previously planned upratings of duties on alcohol.’

“However, an inflationary increase WAS previously planned, and the Government has now announced what this increase is – 3.9 per cent. An increase in beer tax of about £130 million.

“The Chancellor’s statement does NOT mean ‘no increase in alcohol duties’ as some media outlets are reporting.”
