FAQ for alcohol excise duties

The delivery of alcoholic beverages to individuals (B2C) in Europe is fiscally binding:

  • there is no threshold to apply VAT in the target country
  • excise duties are due, locally, from the 1st Euro
  • the use of a local tax representative is mandatory

As soon as you wish to carry out distance sales of alcoholic beverages (wines, beers, spirits) to individuals located in other Member States, you will be faced with the obligation to declare alcohol excise duties and VAT in the Member State delivered from the first euro. Example: You are a French wine producer or an online sales platform and wish to sell your wine directly to individuals located in Belgium, Italy and Spain: you are required to pay excise duties in those countries


In the affirmative, you are bound to observe some excise standards and schemes.

Eurotax will help you to not only define the excise status that suits your situation and help you constitute the corresponding authorization requests with the customs administration, but will also ensure that you maintain a permanent compliance.
