Excise tax rises on liquor, beer

Bangkok Post May 6, 2009 03:53 PM


The cabinet on Wednesday approved increases in excise taxes on beer and liquor, effective from midnight.


The cabinet expected the increase would boost government revenue by 6.3 billion baht per year.


Excise tax on beer will rise to 58% from 55% and on distilled alcoholic drinks to 48% from 45%.


As result the price of rice whiskey, or lao khao , will rise to about 120 baht/litre from 110 baht/litre.


The decision will increase the price of a large bottle of beer by four or five baht, and brandy by about 19 baht.


Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij said the ministry is restructuring the overall tax system, and excise taxes on other products could also be increased.

Girls quite right to protest.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
