Import tariff

On August 13, 2009, the Australian government passed the Customs Tariff Amendment (2009 Measures No. 1) Bill including in the definitions for beer and wine which now include those beer-based and wine-based beverages that mimic alcopops. This change led to the increase of the import duties applied to this product that was set at $66.67 per litre of alcohol. Previously, the duty was set at $39.36.

The government also increased from $39.36 to $66.67 the excise tax applicable to these products.

The objective of these changes is to control problem drinking and alcohol abuse at a young age.
