On the 12th of August SARS released new Draft Tariff Amendments with regard to lower Alcoholic strength of wine. These drafts propose that the alcoholic strength of wine is to be lowered from 6.5 per cent to 4.5 per cent by volume in order to align with the amendments to the Liquor Product Act, 1989 (Act No. 60 of 1989).
SAIT will be making a submission to SARS on these amendments. Comments should be submitted to SAIT technical at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than the 24th of August.
