Indexation Formula – RESET Alcohol Initiative

Taxation and pricing policies are proven to be highly cost-effective in reducing the health and social damage caused by alcohol consumption, while also generating revenue. In Sri Lanka, the government has increased tax rates on alcoholic beverages in successive budgets to achieve these goals.

As part of the RESET Alcohol Initiative’s economic research to support alcohol tax reforms in Sri Lanka, this study conducts a tax simulation analysis. The project aims to effectively design and implement fiscal policies that will reduce alcohol consumption in the country.
