Soft drinks sugar tax delayed until 2019

Tue, 20 Feb 2018

Plans to introduce a sugar tax on the Isle of Man have been pushed back by a year.

Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan confirmed in Tynwald this morning that the proposed Soft Drinks Industry Levy won't be brought in until April next year.

The Isle of Man had planned to follow the UK by introducing SDIL this year, but delays to the duty in Britain mean it's been put back here too.

The British and Manx Governments plan to treat the levy as a shared duty, but the UK was unable to pass the legislation during the 2017-18 year.
