Strange Tax system in Thailand. It's call Value Added Tax (VAT) as called in the European Union. Each time a bottle of Beer is sold or resold the VAT is applied, but seemingly, in Thailand, it stops being applied when the shops or Wholesalers sell it on.

Guess I'll have to make do with my stash of Coronas, Carlsbergs, Budweisers and Hoegaardens.

Why would you stash Bud, run out of drain cleaner?

Have you ever tried the Czech Budweiser?
Yes. And?

The 7-11 near me has Heiniken, small San Mig Light at the old prices. No Leo or Chang in stock.

The Mom & Pop store is selling large Leos for 55 baht per bottle.

Best supermarket has put up their prices already. LEO before was 46 baht a big bottle, now 54 baht. That is an 18% increase in prices!facepalm.gif

LEO at the wholesale outlet was sold in HDY for 495 THB the box or 41,25 THB/bottle. The new price is 552 for a box or 46 THB/bottle. Thus the tax increase is 4.75 THB per bottle (630ml)
