Step Action
1 Check that all the required information has been included
2 Consider the use and either reject and issue a rejection letter or complete a PG1 submission and submit it to the Alcohol Team, Indirect Tax for a decision.
3 If the Alcohol team approve the new use the EPT will issue an authorisation letter. The EPT will update DTR and send letters to the trader folder.
4 If the Alcohol team reject the new use the EPT will issue a rejection letter.
