Wholesalers Alcohol Deadline Looming

awrs deadline loomingThe HMRC have warned that wholesalers’ have only four months remaining to register to continue their alcohol sales under the new Alcohol Wholesaler Registration Scheme (AWRS).

Registration opens from 1st January 2016. Wholesalers must be deemed ‘fit and proper’ to comply with the new regulations, introduced to flush out duty evasion.

The HMRC said anyone who trades without approval would risk a prison sentence of up to seven years and those who bought from unapproved wholesalers face a penalty of up to £10,000.

The completed register isn’t intended to go live until April 2017.
