AUSTRIA

Price increase postponed

19 Mar 2020. On 1 April 2020, cigarette prices in Austria should have been increased by EUR 0.20. Due to the coronavirus, the tobacco tax increase was cancelled, heute.at reported.

In general, the Budget Committee of the National Council decided on 19 March to suspend all tax and fee increases until 30 September 2020, the report said.

This also affects the new tobacco tax model, which would have made cigarettes more expensive on 1 April. Moreover, tobacco shops are considered "critical infrastructure" and remain open even in times of the corona crisis, according to heute.at.
