Excise Duty

In the context of operating one of the highest levels of excise duties in the EU, HMRC is taking an increasingly tough stance and is thoroughly investigating supply chains to combat alleged fraud.

The production and movement of cigarettes, alcohol and oil products in particular from business to business is subject to complex rules and companies can easily fall foul of the regulations.

HMRC officers have the right to seize goods if they believe duty has not been paid or regulations not complied with.
