Our Excise Bond allows us to bring Excise Goods from the port as long as the duties have been paid at the port. We can then take them in. When they are to be taken out, we have to pay the excise on a WS Document. (See more on this page to find out more)
One question we our often asked "do I need a WOWGR certificate" the short answer is yes you do. WOWGR stands for Warehouse Owners of Warehouse Goods Regulations, it is a register that traders must be accepted onto, when accepted you receive a certificate allowing you to trade in Excise Goods. This also allows Brunswick International Freight Warehouse to take alcohol on your behalf.
Brunswick International Freight has a responsibility to register our EXCISE REF/ BOND REF in order complete customs entries to pay the excise from our bond. This is called ATWD which stands for Alcohol, Tobacco, Warehouse, Declarations. The benefits of ATWD can help with:
Save time - Which prepopulated fields and calculations made for you and providing authorization/ rejections online so you do not have o wait two days for a paper copy.
Provides a more accurate returns - with automatic validation before submission.
Keep Records - by storing previously submitted returns and warrants.
You will get an immediate acknowledgement from HMRC of your submissions and a permanent record made for your use.
WS Documentation is used by Brunswick International Freight to inform HMRC of the Excise goods we have received from you to store in our Warehouse. This is to ensure we our compliant with all relevant legislation pertaining to Excise goods. There are a number WS Documents related to Excise goods its important for you to know which one fits the goods you are asking us to process on your behalf they are:
W1 EXCISE WAREHOUSE RETURN
W5 ALCOHOL REMITTANCE RETURN
W5D ALCOHOL DEFERMENT WARRANT
W6 TOBACCO REMITTANCE WARRANT
W6D TOBACCO DEFERMENT WARRANT
EMCS stands for Excise Movement & Control System which allows the recording of movements of Excise goods within the UK and between the UK & EU. At Brunswick International Freight we can apply for EMCS- As this allows us to move excise drink from Bond to Bond this is similar to how T1 movements happen. Without this we cannot move Alcohol from EXCISE to EXCISE, EMCS also allows for the real time notification and the dispatch and receipt of the goods ensuring peace of mind for your goods.
