Trivial thought, I know but symptomatic of retail greed

 

In the last Labour Budget (March2010) The duty on Cider was raised by about 2% as a standard increase, The Chancellor also increased the price by about 10% above inflation.

 

The then opposition stated that when they took over they would remove this amount, and in the Budget of 22 June, this was announced with effect from 01 July 2010

 

It would seem that the Supermarkets are exempt from this as they dont appear to have made any reduction

Supermarkets aren't the bargain most people think they are and never have been. When prices are lower, it usually because the product is tastless junk which stll makes them a massive profit.

Surely the shops will still be carrying pre tax decrease stock and will have to wait for post reduction stock to come through?

Maybe so, but when there is an immediate tax increase on whatever the product, it goes up at the appoinrted hour?

 

ie "Petrol will increase by XXX at Midnight tonight"

All it said is that the duty would reduce, this does not necessarily mean that the price you pay will reduce, provided the rate of duty is correct on the item they can charge what they like (if the price is the same and the duty has gone down that just means the duty-free price has increased).


The above post constitutes my personal opinion on the facts in the post compared with my personal knowledge of the applicable legislation. I make no guarantees of its legal accuracy. If you are in doubt seek advice of a legal professional specialising in the area concerned.

The duty is paid by the manufacturer not the retailer. When it arrives in the shop then the duty has allready been paid.

It would be for petrol DELIVERIES after midnight. So one the supply tanks are refreshed, the new charges apply - it would be 'repricing' if done the way you suggest (and illegal).

I could be wrong but I thought when Labour announced the cider tax increase to 10% it was from a specific date in the future and not instant. The date was a few months in the future (I think), and the new Government reversed this increase before the date the tax would have come into force.

 

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember it like this.

Ahh well, I am probably wrong, but I seem to recall a 2L bottle of, for example Sainsburys fizzy apple juice (aka cider)

was 1.18, then about 1.20 ish (the added tax) then all of a sudden 1.32 (which would be the additional charges?)

Mossycat's recollection is spot on - but again, it will be on stock that they receive on the day (the old stuff being at the old price). THey still cannot reprice on a whim.
