Alcohol Duty Reform

Changes to Alcohol Duty took effect on 1‌‌‌ ‌‌August 2023. This includes new reliefs which could reduce your tax bill:

  • A Small Producer Relief: which reforms and extends the relief previously enjoyed by small breweries, to producers of all alcoholic products under 8.5% ABV; and

  • A reduced rate for draught products also known as Draught Relief, which reduces the tax due on draught alcoholic products under 8.5% ABV, packaged in containers of at least 20 litres, and designed to connect to a qualifying dispense system.

Please contact us to check if you can take advantage of the new reliefs and transitional arrangements for producers and importers of some wine products.
