Excise tax law

Excise tax law plays an important role in relation to costs and not only for companies which consume a lot of energy. Besides energy tax, excise includes taxes on compensating products, electricity, tabacco, coffee, spirits sparkling wines, beer and alcopops. There are numerous obligations which must be fulfilled in order to claim relief from excise tax.
