New Market Report: Cigarettes in Mexico

New Consumer Goods market report from Euromonitor International: "Cigarettes in Mexico"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2014 -- During 2013, the president Enrique Pena Nieto introduced a controversial tax increase that impacted several products and services like high caloric foods and beverages, pet food, interstate transportation and salaries among others. The preferential VAT rate at border cities was also removed. All those new taxes took effect the first day of 2014. During the time that the government was evaluating and deciding which new taxes to approve, the political party PAN proposed an increase at the cigarettes special tax that would pass from Mx$0.35 per stick to Mx$.90, equivalent to an increase of Mx$11 per pack of 20 cigarettes and depending on the price of different brands, it would represent a raise from 24% to 34%. That extra collection would be invested in smoking related health programs. The proposal was evaluated but eventually was not approved; thus, at least during 2014, cigarettes will be taxed exactly the same as in 2013.
