The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) launched the Excise Stamp Tax in November 2017 on all imports of foreign alcoholic beverages and tobacco products (Except Beer).
Why Excise Stamp
Excise Stamp Tax is an anti-smuggling measure to reduce the illicit trade of alcohol/tobacco products within Guyana. Unstamped/illicit goods are produced in an unregulated manner with harmful, largely unknown ingredients; consuming these goods may result in illness or death. Citizens should support the initiative by only purchasing goods that comply with the laws (Stamped alcohol & tobacco products)
