It is possible to store excise goods with the Excise Duty that would normally be owing suspended. There are strict rules from Customs relating to the storage and movement of excise goods in duty suspension in the UK and EU.
Being able to suspend the payment of Excise Duty, can be very beneficial to companies, not least for cashflow reasons. Complying with the obligations to use an Excise Warehouse can, though, be off-putting. Langdon Systems provide an Excise Warehouse module that has been designed to simplify the procedures for storing and issuing excise goods whilst taking advantage of the maximum benefits available.
If the excise goods are imported from outside the EU it is also possible to suspend the Import Duty and/or VAT. A separate authorisation is required from Customs to take advantage of this suspension. Please see Customs Warehouse Module for further details.
