WHAT IS THE FEDERAL EXCISE TAX?
The Government of Canada introduced amendments to the Excise Act, 2001 to implement a new excise duty framework on vaping products. An excise tax is a legislated tax imposed on specific goods, such as alcohol, tobacco, and cannabis products.
As of October 1, 2022, manufacturers began charging an excise tax on their products. The tax is calculated on a per millilitre basis with the breakdown as follows:
$1 for the first 2ml, $5 for the first 10ml and $2 per 10ML thereafter.
HOW WILL THIS IMPACT YOU?
An example of the proposed tax with industry standard bottle sizes are as follows:
$7 per 30mL, $10 per 60mL, and $16 per 120mL.
LifestylE Cig will be implementing the excise tax to all vaping liquids, pre-filled pods and disposables starting December 2022 For all applicable items ordered (Eliquid, Salt Nic, Disposables, Pre-Filled Pods) the Excise tax amount will be included in the per item charge with applicable taxes to be included at the time of checkout.
IS VAPING STILL COST EFFECTIVE?
Along with being the safer option, it is important for vapers to note that even with the new excise tax, vaping is still more cost effective than smoking traditional cigarettes. Additionally, the tax is only applicable to products that contain eliquid and will not be charged on hardware, such as coils.
SMOKING: The cost of smoking in Alberta for an average pack of cigarettes is $13.29. The price of cigarettes has gone up 15% since 2020. Assuming a pack a day smoker, this translates to $404.24 per month, or $4,850.8 per year.
VAPING: Based on feedback from our customers, the average vapor uses approximately 5ml of eliquid per day. At the eliquid price (including excise tax) this translates to a 120ml bottle of our eliquid lasting the average customer 24 days. This is a daily cost of $1.67, which is at minimum 85% cheaper than a pack of cigarettes.
WHEN WILL THE WEBSITE BE UPDATED TO REFLECT THE NEW PRICING?
Our website will be updated to reflect the new pricing with applicable taxes by January 1, 2023. Please note that availability is subject to change at the time of purchase.
