Taxes and excise

The purpose of these tax information guidelines is to enable companies to exchange tax-related information more accurately with Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) data recipients on GS1 GDSN. The procedure for correctly transmitting your VAT data via GS1 GDSN changed in March 2017, and a lot of different taxes (BEBAT, excise, Recupel, etc.) were added to the list. 

Tax information manual

This manual provides all the necessary instructions to exchange this information in a standardised and comprehensible manner.
