Excise Notice 476: Tobacco Products Duty

This notice is about Tobacco Products Duty and the fiscal marking requirements for tobacco products.


This notice cancels and replaces Notice 476 August 2012.

For information: HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) may be revising fiscal marks with a technical consultation on changes to tobacco fiscal marks scheduled for this autumn, and a scheduled rollout of changes in May 2016.

HMRC believe all parties affected have been contacted. However if you are a manufacturer or importer of cigarettes or hand rolling tobacco, and you were not contacted or if you have issues with this timeline please contact HMRC by post or by email:
