Pay excise duty and other charges


Fuel and tobacco products

You must pay excise duty no more than 15 working days from the end of the calendar month the products left the CCA.

Alcohol products

If you’re newly licensed, you must pay excise every month.

We can extend your payment timeframes to 6- or 12-monthly at the start of a new financial year, if you’ve shown you can meet monthly payments and have systems in place to meet future payment and entry timeframes.

We can move you to monthly payments from 6- or 12-monthly timeframes if you haven’t been compliant, or couldn't show that you have systems in place to meet future payment and entry timeframes.

All new licensees – and existing licensees who’re paying monthly – must pay excise duty by the last working day of the month following the month the alcohol products were removed from the CCA.
