Manufacturers: How to get started Track & Trace Solution for regulatory compliance

Excise Tax Compliance

Many countries and regions are imposing an excise tax on manufacturers of certain consumer goods such as sugary drinks, fertilizer and tobacco, often with the triple objective of promoting health, mitigating tax evasion and increasing government revenues.

One of the ways to enforce the excise tax regulation is by implementing a Digital Tax-Stamp (DTS) program. This usually consists of a unique, secure code printed either on a stamp or directly on the product, enabling monitoring and traceability from manufacturer to retailer. The data is stored in a centralized government database. Manufacturers need to be registered and connected to the program’s system and provide product information for tax compliance.
