The Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan TD, invites interested parties to make submissions in relation to a tax on the production and importation of sugar-sweetened drinks (SSD).

This follows from the Minister’s announcement in Budget 2017 that we would seek to introduce an SSD tax in 2018 after a public consultation, making good on the commitment in the Programme for a Partnership Government (PfPG) for a tax on sugar-sweetened drinks.

The consultation period will run to 5pm on Tuesday 3rd January 2017. Any submissions received after this date may not be considered.
