“Colombia assesses a consumption tax on alcoholic beverages through a system of specific rates per degree (percentage point) of alcohol strength (Law 788 of 2002, Chapter V). Arbitrary breakpoints have the effect of applying a lower tax rate to domestically produced spirits and therefore create a barrier for imported distilled spirits. Under the CTPA, Colombia committed to eliminate the breakpoints for imports of distilled spirits within four years of the Agreement‟s entry into force. Additionally, Colombia committed to eliminate practices that have restricted the ability of U.S. distilled spirits companies to conduct business in Colombia”.
