Finland raises alcohol taxes again

Samstag 27. Juni 2009 von htm

Finland takes effective measures against alcohol related deaths. The leading cause of death in Finland
is excessive drinking. Therefore, Finland’s parliament unanimously agreed to raise the taxes on alcohol by up to 10% – beer and wine is set to rise by three percent and spirits by seven percent. This is the second time this year the Finish government is increasing alcohol taxation. After it had been raised by 10% in January, the government announced in March this year that they want to rise again, because of health concerns. The rise this year will be effective from October 2009. Finland is, along with Sweden and Ireland, one of the countries that have the highest taxes on alcohol in Europe.
