AUSTRALIA

Postby invivoSpirits » Sun Apr 05, 2015 5:17 am

... I do have an inquiry from Australia, 3450 Victoria from Castlemaine but I do not know what kind of license are needed in Australia and what kind of tax they have there! Anyone who could help me out what are the legal regulations to export to Australia (fruit brandies from 38% alc. vol. up to 52% alc. vol.).
Any information from IMPORTLICENCE to LABELING would be appreciated!! I did register for the FINE FOOD AUSTRALIA 20015 worth beeing there, any opinion about that?

Hi to Vienna - Nice and very livable city - been there twice recently - enjoyed it a lot

Suggest you check out these websites

http://www.customs.gov.au/webdata/resou ... tSheet.pdf
http://law.ato.gov.au/atolaw/view.htm?D ... 1231235958

And just do a google search for other related stuff

Duty on spirits is very high in Australia.....

Cheers

do I read or understand it right:

1l noble brandy pear with 41% vol. alc. the duty would be 74,5 x 0,41= 30,545 just the duty on alcohol plus VAT

if so I can't believe that!!!

That's how I read it - but there must be ways to skirt the classifications because you can buy 'cheap' French brandy here for $26 a 700ml bottle (Bardinet VSOP -37% abv)

Hennessy VSOP - $70 -700ml - 40%abv

Typically a common price range for average spirits is $40-$45 per 700ml bottle - 40%abv

Check out this site - one of the largest retailers in Aust

That's about right. Duty is $74.5 x 0.700ml x 0.37 a/v = $19.30. Sales margin is $26 less $19.30 = $6.70
Govt pockets most of the cash but shares NONE of the risk.

Hi Harry

I do agree that "Govt" pockets and does not pay back same as here in Vienna.
But I do not agree that your counted sales margin of 6,70 never ever could cover:
1) Production cost
2) Transport costs
3) Retailers profit

and what about VAT? We have here in Vienna 20% on brandies food is normally 10%

I am very interested in this topic as I have seen that at the MARKETPLACE AUSTRIA FOOD 2015 where we do exhibit the following AUSTRALIAN Companies will visit and are also interested in alcoholic beverages:

SPF Oceania Pty Ltd
Australia, Campbellfield
Angelo Phillipou, Mr, Managing Director

Premier Food&Beverages P/L
Australia, Campbellfield, VIC
Rainer Sandmann, Managing Director

Anyone connected to these persons or does know more about them. I do remember 2013 speaking to Mr. Sandmann looked like a very friendly and open person....

That was my point.
Not 'my' figures. Their figures, calculated from the provided info.

I agree with you totally. The margin is WAAAY too small to be believed. Nobody could make money on that. Methinks you need to ask govt a couple pointed questions, yes? :wink:
