45% tax on bottled water
Many countries have inadequate public water supplies. Bottled water is often a real lifeline.
It is difficult to believe, therefore, that any country in the world already imposes a 45% tax on bottled water:
• 10% excise duty on local production or imported plastic
• 17.5% ex-factory price tax
• 17.5% value added tax.
It is even more astonishing to discover that this country is now considering extra taxation on bottled water.
Which country ? Ghana. Surely, a tax too far.
