The calculation of the Excise Tax payable is based on completing the below forms (as applicable):
- Excise declaration forms
(requiring customs clearance) for importing excisable goods and/or the release
of excisable goods from designated zones
- Excise liability forms for tax liability on the production of excisable goods and/or the release of excisable goods from designated zones without customs clearance
- Excise Tax due on stockpiling of excise goods - a separate form for declaring stockpiled goods is not required. The taxable person can manually input the tax due from stockpiling excise goods
- Deductible Excise Tax
It is worth noting that the due date to file Excise Tax returns is the 15th day of every month (i.e. the first return would then be due by 15 November 2017).
