Everyone’s been talking about the Australian Government’s latest budget and what it means; so, when we heard there’d be a new tax that would affect our Brides-to-Be, we knew we had to warn you.
From July 1, 2017, the Government are implementing a new tax, ironically called the WET (wine equalisation tax) Tax Rebate. This tax will mean that any alcohol company that sells more than $1 million worth of drinks, including beer, wine and champagne, will be out of pocket and will probably pass on these extra costs to the consumers… you.
Putting it simply, your bottles of Veuve, Moet and Mumm are about to become a whole lot more pricey. If you’re supplying alcohol at your Wedding, you might want to stock up now, or pay a deposit to your venue to lock in their drinks package asap (before the increase happens)!
