Australian Leisure & Hospitality Group ("ALH Group") is a full subsidiary of Carlton and United Breweries. Between 1 July 2000 and 28 July 2000 the ALH Group incorrectly applied the Wine Equalisation Tax ("WET") to approximately 20 alcohol products which resulted in it over-charging consumers for these products.

In accordance with its Trade Practices Compliance Program, the ALH Group notified the ACCC immediately of the conduct and confirmed that all affected products had been removed from sale. The total cost of the conduct for the 28-day period to consumers was $12,322.00. The estimated direct benefit to consumers of the proposed settlement is estimated to be in excess of $30,000.00.

ALH Group entered into a Section 87B Undertaking with the ACCC which included a full compensation package.
