TAX WAREHOUSE STORAGE

Customs procedure which allows goods subject to excise duty to be stored without needing to pay it when the goods are received but instead when they are actually placed on the market.

OUR TAX WAREHOUSE BONDED WAREHOUSE SERVICES

When importing and marketing alcoholic beverages, the goods have to be associated with a tax warehouse where excise duties are paid. Our facilities in Ribarroja are authorised by the Spanish Tax Agency to operate as an Alcoholic Beverages Tax Warehouse. This warehouse’s services include:

  • Reception of the product under excise duty suspension and VAT exemption.
  • Storage of the product for an indefinite period of time under this arrangement and stock management.
  • Paying excise duties and putting on tax labels once they have been settled.
  • Traceability control.
  • Managing sales between entities.
  • Value-added services: loading and unloading lorries and containers, palletising, packaging and shrink-wrapping.
  • Dispatch of goods as per the customer’s instructions.
  • WHO THE TAX WAREHOUSE BONDED WAREHOUSE IS FOR

    Importers of alcoholic beverages, such as distilled spirits, who want to pay excise duty only when they ship the goods to be marketed. It may also be useful for wineries or alcoholic beverage importers who do not have a warehouse authorised by customs to operate as a tax warehouse.

  • BENEFITS OF TAX WAREHOUSING

    The main benefit of tying alcoholic beverages to our tax warehouse is that you will only pay excise duty on the orders you release for consumption.

    In other words, if you receive a container at the port and put it into free circulation, you have to pay the full amount of duty, whereas in our tax warehouse you only pay for what you have sold.

    Apart from beers and some spirits, the rest have no expiry date, so for many customers this business is a form of investment.
