Tobacco Products Tax

A new Tax and Duty Manual - Tobacco Products Tax - has been published. This Manual replaces Public Notice 1877T and will be of particular interest to tobacco traders in Ireland.

All queries regarding the implementation of the traceability and security features system in Ireland should be directed to:
