Increase in sin taxes

The bad news for alcohol and tobacco indulgers is the (albeit expected) rise in excise duties, which will go up between 5.7% and 10% in 2013. Taxes on cigarettes increase 60c to R10.92 per pack of 20, beer by 7.5c per 340ml and wine by 15c per 750ml bottle. Spirit drinkers can also expect to pay R3.60 more for every 750ml bottle consumed.
