Excise duty refund on diesel for road transport: publication of new refund rates


There were a number of tax changes announced in the mini-budget of 23 September aimed at stimulating the UK economy with an annual growth target of 2.5%.

Amongst these changes was an announcement to freeze alcohol duty which had otherwise been due to increase.

The duty savings amount to:

  • 7p on a pint of beer

  • 4p on a pint of cider

  • 38p on a bottle of wine

  • 1.35 on a bottle of spirits

  • The freeze will also apply to pre-mixed spirit-based products (alcopops) with an abv of less than 8.5%.
