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.
