18.11.2013: Alcoholic beverage tax and prices

The raise of alcoholic beverage tax is still in process in the Finnish Parliament.

This means that we cannot publish the 2014 price calculator yet. Nor can we calculate the new (January) retail prices for listed products, or set prices for the new products to be listed nex year, before the tax decision has been finalized.

In our listing instructions we say that the purchase price of a product can be changed with as much as the pricing factors - such as taxes - change, and that this must be done latest 2 months before the product's listing date. In the present situation we are flexible with the time limit. The taxes must first be confirmed by the Parliament, and after that you can negotiate the purchase price with the buyer in charge.
