Event description

Description

Blockchain, the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies, has been successfully commercialised for supply chains in other industries including grains in Australia, freight in South Korea, and diamonds and tuna in the UK.

Based on this evidence we at Brew2Venue have issued a challenge to the Blockchain developer community to prove the potential of the technology in solving the problem of Excise Duty for the beer industry.

We're inviting all industry stakeholders to join us at the inaugural Beer Blockchain Development Day in Brisbane on the 4th and 5th of August, 2017.


Brew2Venue’s hypothesis

Can excise duty on beer be deferred for collection until B2C point-of-sale?

Payments by the consumer at point-of-sale (POS) is redistributed to all parties in the supply chain including payment of the producer’s excise duty to the ATO.

The benefit to solving this problem would see the collection and automated reporting of excise duty at the POS which would be a significant boost to cash flow for the producer.


Expected outcomes

The purpose of this event is to bring the blockchain developer community and beer industry together to identify a solution to the problem of excise duty on beer. While it is improbable a solution can be built in a day, the event is expected to start the conversation toward a commercially viable solution for this industry in Australia and New Zealand.
