SRA wants tax slapped
on Coke, ruling out soon

Sugar Regulatory Administration chief Ma. Regina Bautista-Martin yesterday said Coca-Cola’s premix sugar has been classified as “C” or reserve sugar to prevent its release domestically while a hearing is being conducted by the Bureau of Customs on its status.

Coca-Cola’s premix imports since January have reached 24,000 metric tons that on testing were found to be more than 99.5 percent sugar with the remaining amount being flavoring and or coloring, SRA findings show.

The SRA wants Customs to classify the Coke premix imports as sugar that should be subjected to a 38 percent tariff, and not as premixes that can enter the country at zero tariff, Martin said.moremoremore
