Excise Tax Recovery

We collaborate with finance ministries, revenue agencies and customs departments to better understand their tax collection challenges and the complexity of supply and distribution chains operating within their country. These consultative efforts enable us to develop effective and efficient tax stamp programs that will not only increase tax revenues, but also protect citizens from the harmful effects of contraband while ensuring fair and open commerce.

Our modern tax stamp programs combine tax stamps with multi-level security features with a traceability element for supply chain visibility, combating different forms of criminal activity, ensuring tax stamp enforcement and securing the supply chain security.

COVID-19 Policy Statement


At Authentix, our mission to safeguard the integrity of global commerce is our priority as we continue to focus on customer needs with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 health emergency. Our corporate leadership team is monitoring the situation closely and its potential impact on supply chain continuity.

Our first and foremost commitment is to the health and safety of all Authentix employees. As we have said when faced with other similar infectious disease situations, we will never force Authentix employees to travel to geographic areas where they are uncomfortable or that present an increased risk of exposure to infectious disease.

Effective through April 30, 2020, we have closed the Addison Texas Facility to all personnel who do not require facility equipment to conduct their job, allowing for only those functions such as production/shipping/testing as needed to continue to serve our customers. We have banned all visitors to the Addison Texas Facility as well. We encourage all Authentix sites to enact a similar ban for employee safety and to restrict visitors, but realize this restriction is subject to local needs. We have further banned all air/train travel for all employees for Authentix business purposes. We ask that all customers, vendors or suppliers support these efforts and for those who present themselves at Authentix locations to respect and adhere to our policies and procedures that may limit access on this temporary basis.

We will continue to communicate regularly with our suppliers and updating contingency plans to ensure against any adverse impact or disruption to our customers, acknowledging that we are however subject to continued government restrictions and limited availability of transportation that may continue during this time. We encourage you to reach out to your Authentix point of contact with any questions or concerns.
