Alcopops tax; application for permit to handle untaxed alcopops.

If you are handling alcopops that are not taxed, you will need a permit in many cases. This is the case when producing, handling, processing, storing, receiving or sending the alcopops.

Description

Prerequisites

  • You are fiscally reliable.
  • To the extent you are required to do so, you keep proper records and prepare timely financial statements.
  • If you receive or ship goods for which alcopop tax is suspended, or if tax matters appear to be at risk, you may be required to provide security.

Detailed information on the respective requirements for a permit can be found on the Customs Administration website.

Procedure

All permits must be applied for in advance in writing at the relevant main customs office.

  • Download the appropriate form for the main application via the Customs Administration website:
    • "Application for Tax Warehouse Permit for Alcohol Products or Alcopops" (Form 1240).
    • "Application - registered consignee, permanent permit" (Form 2745)
    • "Application - registered consignee in individual case" (form 2728)
  • Complete the forms in their entirety, assemble the documents required for each, and mail them to your main customs office.
  • The main customs office will review your application.
  • You will receive notification with permission or a refusal.

Deadlines

You must apply for a permit in good time before your tax warehouse is put into operation for the first time or before you start operating as a registered consignor or registered consignee.

Processing time

The processing time depends on the specific circumstances of each individual case, in particular on the result of the examination of the actual operating conditions. Since the time spans vary greatly here, no uniform processing time can be specified.
