If a pricing factor, like alcoholic beverage tax, some other tax or some other factor (independent from Alko) is changed and it is not possible for suppliers to respond to it within the limits of the Alko´s normal price list period,

  • Alko reserves a right to provide an additional possibility for changing the purchase prices out of normal price list period cycle.

  • Alko reserves a right to change the announced price list periods in such a manner, that the beginning of a price list period can be matched to the timing of the tax increase or other pricing factor change, as long as the beginning of the price list period will not change more than 40 days.

  •  Alko has the right to implement the effects of these factors to purchase and retail prices as a unilateral technical change out of normal price list period cycle.
