Illegal Cigarettes Decrease by 0.1 Per Cent in Q3 Compared to Q2

18.12.2019
December 18 (BTA) - The illegal cigarettes trade in the third quarter of 2019 decreased by 0.1 per cent from the second quarter of the year, and by 2 per cent compared to the third quarter of 2018, findings based on an empty packs survey show. The Q3 level of contraband trade in cigarettes is the lowest since 2010, Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said. In Marinov's words, there is a clear tendency that towns closer to border areas have higher shares of contraband cigarettes. The Director of the Customs Agency, Georgi Kostov, said that the gross revenue from excise duty on tobacco products in January-November 2019 stands at 2.501 billion leva, which is 177 million leva, or 7.7 per cent, more than the revenue in the like period in 2018, at the background of unchanged excise duty rates. These revenues are also 150 million, or 6.4 per cent, more than the target set forth in the budget. RI/ZH // Source: Sofia, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/DF/id/2123497
