From the new website, A Fair Go for Craft Beer:
Australia's small breweries are being strangled by excise tax. On top of all the usual taxes any small business pays, microbrewers have to fork out 25% of their sales income straight to the ATO in the form of excise. How is an industry expected to survive under such a crippling tax regime?
The Australian Association of Microbreweries needs your help to persuade the Federal Government to amend Excise Tax legislation and to give microbrewers a FAIR GO.
Better beer lovers have a lot to gain from what is being proposed so we're going to play or our part by having a petition on the the bars for punters to sign..
