Tax to rise on zero-alcohol beer

Sorted, NO increase on tax. 

It's sad when greed and profit come before trying to improve people's health, by encouraging them to pack in. 

This policy is working, therefore we should delay it... Disgusted by these brainlets.

Figure this, my local 7-11 won't sell non-alcoholic beer between 2PM and 5PM.

What about ginger beer and root beer? Are they going to get increased taxes as well?

First quarter of 2020 will see new tax on "beer" nuts.

Boy if they only would tax their idiotic ideas and every time they opened their mouths then the government would be rich. I thought non alcohol beer was meant exactly for people who don't want to drink.

They're pushing up tax on safer alternatives as the couple familes who own the Thai alcohol and all the other beverage markets don't want to lose money.

This is strange!? 

I always thought that you should promote the better alternative.

Here they are adding more tax on that instead. Wonder what effect that will have?

Just like vaping... do everything possible to discourage healthier alternatives.

In Tops they do. They even have a special sign telling you that you can buy non-alcoholic beer anytime of the day. Saying that; I do remember trying to buy some a while back and the lady in Tops said, "cannot". After explaining it's non-alcoholic like Coke or Pepsi, etc, she called over her manager and they compartmentalized their thoughts very hard. They thought long and hard and came to the conclusion that not only was I right, but I was 'keng mak', and decided to sell it to me. 

 

*Disclaimer: the non-alcoholic beer wasn't for me.

The Thai government is insolvent and looking for tax revenues EVERYWHERE

Yet, no Income Tax on self employed Thais...

This is absolutely the right way to go.   Give it a few more years and water will be taxed at 200% in order to deter people from drinking.

And what about grape juice ?   Surely, that can condemn a man (or woman) to drink.
