THE PROVINCIAL BUDGET - How it Affects Hotels & Restaurants

On March 22, 2017 the Provincial Government released its budget for 2017-2018.  Overall, the budget expands the tax system by shifting toward consumption taxes and away from income taxes. CLICK HERE for a summary of changes that will impact our member hotels and restaurants.

As part of the provincial budget, the wholesale markup rates for all product categories will increase effective April 1. The actual amount of the increase will vary depending on the individual product; however, the resulting wholesale markup quoted in SLGA’s Price Lists will increase as follows:


•             Most beer products will increase 6.8 per cent;

•             Most coolers will increase 6 per cent;

•             Most wines will increase 5.3 per cent;

•             Most spirits will increase 4 per cent.


The new wholesale markup rate will apply to all products distributed through SLGA’s Distribution Centre and products distributed by private beer distributors (BDL, Sleeman, Minhas). It will be up to individual retailers to decide whether or not to pass the wholesale markup increases on to their customers.


All retailers will be emailed a new updated price list (effective April 1) by the end of the week. RSPs will still pay the current prices for products until March 31.   To clarify, in order to ensure orders are entered and processed at current rates, RSPs must place orders no later than 2 p.m. on March 31. Orders received will be shipped on your next regular shipping date. Please note that any orders received after 2 p.m. on March 31 will be subject to the increased rates.


If you have any questions about the changes please contact your account representative.
