Excise Duty


Excise duty in Poland must be accounted for and paid on certain categories of goods, such as energy products, electricity, alcohol, alcoholic beverages and tobacco products. Although passenger cars are not excise goods under the statute, they are subject to excise duty nonetheless.

All enterprises that must pay excise duty in the course of their business can benefit from our advice on excise duty issues.

Excise duty is a special kind of tax as it is governed by both Polish internal law and the EU legislation (as regards harmonised goods). Therefore, excise duty regulations may prove problematic in practice.  By outsourcing the excise duty issues to professionals you can be sure that your obligations in this area are fulfilled properly. In this way you can also learn about opportunities to enjoy excise duty exemptions in your business activity and about the applicable or, as the case may be, reduced excise duty rates.
