Excise Duties are indirect taxes on the sale or use of specific products such as petrol and diesel, alcoholic drinks and tobacco products. The excise duty is payable regardless of whether they are manufactured in the UK or brought to the UK from another EU member state or imported from a country outside the EU.

This one day course in Customs and Excise is aimed at individuals who are new to or work with Excise products and would like to improve their knowledge.
