JAPAN: MOF may raise tax on "beer-like" brands

By | 12 November 2004

The tax on beer-tasting products could increase, Japan's Mainichi Shimbun reported today (12 November).

The paper said that the country's Finance Ministry is considering raising taxes on the products and will make a decision by the end of the month.

The rise has been proposed to close an apparent loophole that has allowed beer-like products, such as Sapporo Breweries Draft One, to slip through the tax system.

Sectors: Beer & cider

Companies: Sapporo
