by Antwerp Tax Academy
Evolved from a typical medieval tax, excises are probably the most cost-efficient taxes in terms of collection. The state revenue from excise duties amounts to several billions of euros. Nevertheless, only a limited number of operators is subject to the rules laid down in the excise legislation. This because excise duties are only levied on energy products, alcohol and alcoholic drinks, non-alcoholic drinks, coffee and manufactured tobacco. In this module a more detailed focus will be given on the EMCS, e-commerce and the product categories energy products, alcohol and alcoholic products, and non-alcoholic products and coffee.
This advanced module can be taken by participants who have already passed the basic programme or can prove that they have obtained an equivalent degree of experience.
All classes are taught in English and involve a high degree of interaction. Participants who attend at least 80% of the classes and pass the exam at the end of the advanced module receive a certificate.
All classes are offered online and are recorded as well. Participants can listen to the recordings afterwards in preparation for the exam.
The exam will take place at the Stadscampus, University of Antwerp. Foreign participants are offered the opportunity to take the exam from a distance.
This advanced module is designed to ensure participants achieve an advanced level of competence (Level 2 of the EU Customs Competency Framework).
