Procedure: revenue risks
Each new application for a licence should be examined critically. Any duty suspension arrangements afforded to a licensed wine producer present a risk to the revenue that should be estimated for each new wine producer.
On NRU’s request, the National Co-ordination Unit (NCU) will perform the following checks on a new applicant:
- confirmation of the legal status
- cross reference to the VAT register, examination of the wine producer’s folder if appropriate, looking particularly at the reliability and compliance indicators
