Tomorrow change the tax rate of alcohol The third beer of the price increase The person of the summary purchase also September 30 19:07
Due to the revision of the Liquor Tax Law, the tax rate on alcohol will change from October 1st, and the so-called “third beer” will be raised. Before this, the appearance of the person who bought “third beer” together was seen in the retail store in Tokyo.
On the sake sales floor of a consumer electronics retailer in Shinjuku, Tokyo, a third beer will be raised from October, right next to the entrance of the store. As soon as possible,” the case was piled up with pops written.
In this store, the price of the third beer is going to be raised by about 300 yen per case of 24 bottles of 350 ml after the tax increase of the day, and from last week, some people buy five cases at once, and the number of customers who try to buy it while the price is low is increasing.
A woman in her fifties who bought two of these cases together said, “I heard that taxes would be increased, so I came to run in. My family drinks a lot, so I’d appreciate it if it was a little cheaper.”
Another woman said, “Beer drops, but it’s still expensive, so I’m not thinking about switching. The third beer was attractive because it was cheap, but I’m a little unconvinced that the tax will be increased.”
Mr. Yuki Masuda, chief of the liquor department at Big Camera Shinjuku Nishiguchi, said, “We look forward to an increase in sales of beer and sake, where the liquor tax goes down as the price of the third beer rises.”
Craft beer company expected to increase beer popularity
On the other hand, with the beer tax rate going down from October 1, we heard from craft beer makers that they expect beer to become more popular.
The Barley Sake Project, which manufactures and sells craft beer, brews beer at each of its eight stores in Tokyo and Saitama Prefecture and sells freshly brewed beer.
This time, the tax rate of beer will go down, but this company will not lower the selling price of beer.
With regard to tax reductions, we would like to increase the amount of hops used as raw materials and use them to make more fragrant beers and develop new products using new materials.
Takayuki Fujikawa, head of barley wine planning, said, “Because the amount of brewing is different, we cannot compete with major brewers in terms of price, so we want to be able to provide more value-added delicious beer to consumers. Sales are tough due to the effects of coronaviruses, so we want to make it a chance for a lot of people to get to know our company’s beer.”
