If we could abandon the useless annual return it would save me a months work. This return requires a report in terms of litres sold per outlet that is not supported by MYOB. So, much calculation is involved. I am a wine producer and report my output to a number of government agencies already. I am sure the breweries do the same. Unnecessary duplication. Mindless stupidity. What is the point of all this detail. Who needs it? Gone are the days where a state tax was levied on liquor sales. The Feds have the details now because of the WET tax. The Bureau of Census and Stats also have the details on alcohol production as do the EPA because of the carbon dioxide emissions from fermentation. All needless duplication.
