These two tasks are available to be completed up until the 28th of August. Thank you to the stores who have completed.
The final task (5) is now also available to complete (the Excise task). This is also available to be completed until the 28th of August.

Tasmanian stores – deliveries to Tasmania have returned to business as usual so the extended credit for Tasmanian retailers will return to normal as planned from close of business today.

BAT

Updated promotions for next week can be found under promotions. Current Pall Mall 40/Holiday 40 rebates extended for another week.

myBAT only displays the promotional caps for subtrade marks with off invoice deals loaded for the month.
As Pall Mall/Holiday 30 promotions are deferred in August they will not be displayed on myBAT. Your BAT rep can assist.

Going well with these multi-buys. There has been a miscommunication from BAT on two multi-buy capping volumes.
Rothmans Cool Crush 25/75 and Winfield Original 20/80 had their weekly caps swapped. Updated list under promotions.

QLD ONLY – Roller’s Cut 25 gram RYO being released 1st September. $46.36 WLP incl. GST. Deleted product will be Port Royal Highland Whisky 25 gram.
Nationally – Winnies rolling papers and crush filters both released 1st September.
More information on these products can be found under products.

Richland

As previously communicated outlets that achieve +5% TMC share for Richland scan can earn an additional TMC $3.00/’000 deferred on purchases.
Stores that choose/or are not recognised by at least 1 major manufacturer can also earn $2.00/’000 deferred on purchases if their store has opted into the PML 50% price board option and has a minimum 4 price board slots/tickets for Richland. 10% scan versus purchase variance applies for both components and photos required of the priceboard/ticketing.
The current environment is slowing down the process of photo collection on the price board/ticketing option so TSG will delay the $2.00 component on a quarterly basis i.e. start of Q4 October.
