Some of the cigarettes in the shops became more expensive from 5 to 10 denars. Therefore, the cigarettes “Jade” and “Lucky Strike” from 95 denars per box, are now sold for 100 denars each, and the price of “Rothmans” has increased from 100 to 110 denars.
Cigarette distributors say the rise in prices in the domestic market is due to manufacturers raising prices.

– The cigarettes we work with increased by 5 denars, as a result of the increased price from the suppliers and this increase is not due to increased excise, such a new correction can be expected in July – say from “Eurotabac”.

According to the Law on Excise Duties, the stakes for cigarettes are gradually increasing in the period from 2013 to 2023. The excise tax on cigarettes now amounts to 2,453 denars per piece (weight per piece is the average weight of 1,000 pieces without filter and additive) and 9 percent of the retail price per box.

On July 1, there will be a new increase in the prices of all cigarettes, and this will be a result of the increase in the excise tax.
“From July 1, 2016 until July 1, 2023, the rates of non-specific and minimum excise duty on cigarettes will increase by 0.20 denars per piece on July 1 each year,” informed the Ministry of Finance.
