Cheers, Phil! Duty on booze is FROZEN in a move saving 2p on a pint of beer, 1p on a pint of cider, and 30p on a bottle of Scotch or gin (…but it’s BAD news for wine drinkers).
Beer and cider drinkers may raise a glass to Philip Hammond tonight after he froze duty on both drinks in his budget.
But wine-lovers will be less impressed with the Chancellor after he announced duties on bottles of red and white will increase with inflation.
Spirits will escape increases, with the duty on a bottle of Scotch or gin also frozen compared to the inflation assumption in the OBR forecast.
“Once again, we had the pleasure of working with Sheldon, Philippe and the team at Joelson – this time starting and completing the transaction in 5 days! Nothing too difficult for you guys. Many thanks and brilliant work.”
