Excise Duties & Regulations

Excise Duties and Regulations - Greenlane The Alliance of European Customs and Trade Law Firms

We help clients who produce or trade excise goods such as alcohol, alcoholic drinks, energy products, electricity or tobacco products, and assist them in applying rules on payment of excise duties in their country. We also provide advice regarding the national rules applicable, or within intercommunity transactions, movement of goods subject to excise duties, and international operations (export/import).


We provide clients consultancy on Excise Duties, which concerns the preparation of advisory reports, the assistance on taxation of the operations involving excise duty-taxed products. We also draft consultations and provide updates on the recent changes of excise legislation.


We offer our help with litigations against Tax Excise Administration concerning settlements or penalties. This involves appeal proceedings, requests for repayment, cassation proceedings, assistance within investigations and preliminary rulings before European court of Justice.



We help clients in managing internal audits, aimed at avoiding tax contingencies regarding Excise Duties. We also settle training programs or seminars, focused on covering specific day-to-day problems, or explaining legislative developments.

Training programs

We organise training programs or seminars, focused on covering specific day-to-day problems, or on explaining legislative developments.

We also ensure that the whole team is included in the process and that no one is left out during the turnaround. The most crucial part is ensuring some degree of financial stability during the turnaround.

This is the most worrying part for most clients going through or needing a turnaround; it means that incoming cash flows will change completely. We help ease these issues through fantastic financial projections and a realistic view of what can be accomplished.

Creating a list of potential qualified prospects for your service or product can be daunting when you’re beginning your business. However, this needs to be considered as a follow up on your Target Market Analysis so you can hit the ground running.
