Every system of taxation is very complicated. That is why tax adviser are very favored. Consequently, we can only give you a rough overview, but we are not able to make a mandatory statement. Furthermore, we only correspond to the tax on alcohol.
The tax on alcohol is a national tax, meaning that every country within Europe has its own tax law. The customs duty is responsible for the tax on alcohol, not the finance office.
Consequently, ever country wants to have the tax on alcohol which is sold in their own country. So, the tax is incurred where the alcohol was sold lastly.
This means, if you sell spirits in Germany to a private individual within Europe, Germany obtains the tax on alcohol and the value-added tax, since Germany was the last country the spirits were sold.
If spirits are sold to a company within Europe, the product has to be edited regarding customs law and law of taxation in this country. At this point, it is recommended to transport the products firstly to a bonded warehouse at the target location for customs clearance (under withholding of the alcohol tax) and pay tax on the product at the target location via the bonded warehouse.
The tax rates, for the value-added tax as well as for the tax on alcohol, differ depending on the country.
The products are covered by insurance via PULQ GbR during the whole storage time. As soon as the products are no longer located or are not yet located at our ground of PULQ GbR, for instance, the products are still located with the haulage service, the products are not covered by insurance anymore/yet via PULQ.
If you own a company in Germany or Europe, you are allowed to write the bills for your customers and you can give us the transfer order afterwards.
If you do not own a company in Germany or in Europe, we as PULQ GbR will write the bills after we buy your products.
Spirits are taxed with 19% on private clients and industrial establishments, who are not authorized of input tax reduction.
For companies who are authorized of input tax reduction, the value-added tax of 19% is not incurred.
The tax on alcohol is also added. 13,03Euros for one liter of pure alcohol. For example, a 700ml bottle of spirit with an alcohol level of 40%Vol Alc. Makes 3,65Euros
So, you want to receive 10,00Euros for your bottle. Firstly, you add tax on alcohol. As in the example above, this would make 13,65Euros. This prize has to be taxed with 19%. As a result, the total prize would be 16,24Euros. These calculations are very important in order to calculate the write selling price. Notice: first calculate the tax on alcohol, then add it to the wished selling price, before the value-added tax is added afterwards. Everything else would result in wrong outcomes.
In times of Covid-19 and the restrictions, which result from it, the possibility of extreme delays cannot be excluded. Import and export are both possible. Nevertheless, you should be aware of the fact that a time scheduling is not possible!
We are thrilled with this oppurtunity given from PULQ. Our fine and magnificent Mezcal, hadn't otherwise had the chance to cross the ocean. We are gratefull for all the support given to us during the burocratic, otherwise complicated, process of entering Europe, made so simple and transparent by PULQ.
We've been looking forward to expanding our market to Europe, but as small producers we couldn't afford a subsidiary in Europe or find a distributor. With PULQ we got the chance to compete side by side with established brands and still get fair margins. This is called Fair Trade in its true sense.
I was given the possibility to work with great and quite unknown Mezcal in Europe. I'm proud to represent such an high quality beverage and be the ambassador of such a great liquid culture of the world. My clients are excited to try different brands that would be otherwise out of reach.
