This program aims to offset the impact of a series of Commonwealth tax changes on the Victorian wine industry. It is intended to offset the price impact of WET or excise duty, two mutually exclusive Commonwealth taxes imposed on the sale of certain wine products/alcoholic beverages, respectively.
The subsidy should not be claimed for a sale or use for which a Commonwealth rebate has already been claimed. In some circumstances, a sale or use may be eligible for a subsidy in more than one state. No requirement to provide donor workout copy. However, only one claim may be made in relation to a particular sale or application for own use, irrespective of the jurisdiction in which it is made.
Please refer to the Guidelines for the licensing requirement.
