Today the IBA has taken another important step in our campaign to reform Australia’s excise system.
We have just released a report, prepared by reputable Melbourne firm Essential Economics, that shows how a more equitable excise regime would bring more jobs and investment to the Australian independent brewing industry, with the reforms themselves being revenue positive for the Federal Government.
The report has provided the basis for a submission that we have made to the Federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison, calling on the Federal Government to provide more support to the Australian independent brewing industry.
We will be following up this submission with a campaign involving our members to gain support from Federal MPs.
We have also put out a press release which you can read here.
We will keep you updated as the campaign progresses.
