The soft drinks tax, which came into effect in April 2018, is applied to soft drinks containing added sugar above a certain threshold. 18p per litre is added to soft drinks containing 5-<8g of added sugar per 100ml, and 24p per litre to soft drinks containing 8g+ of added sugar per 100ml. The soft drinks tax does not apply to pure fruit juice (like Appletiser), no added sugar drinks (like Coca-Cola Zero Sugar), or drinks with a minimum of 75% milk content.
