1. These Regulations prescribe the procedures by which denatured tobacco products, tobacco products that are destroyed and tobacco products that are used for the determination of the quality of tobacco products are exempted from excise duty (hereinafter - duty). These Regulations do not apply to confiscated tobacco products.

[19 July 2005]

2. Denatured tobacco products shall be considered products that conform to one of the following conditions:

2.1. such tobacco products are ground in very tiny particles (dust), which irreversibly denies the possibility to use such products for the manufacturing of other tobacco products or for consumption; or

2.2. chemical substances have been added thereto, which irreversibly denies the possibility to use such products for the manufacturing of other tobacco products or for consumption.

3. The denaturing of tobacco products in a tax warehouse shall be permitted only for such tax warehouse keeper who is permitted to perform operations with tobacco products. The warehouse keeper shall notify the State Revenue Service in writing regarding the time and place of denaturing not later than within a time period of two working days before the denaturing of the tobacco products. The tobacco products shall be denatured, as well as a sample of denatured tobacco products necessary for a conformity assessment shall be taken in the presence of an authorised official of the State Revenue Service.

4. The importing of denatured tobacco products from Member States of the European Union and states that are not Member States of the European Union shall be permitted if such tobacco products are moved to a tax warehouse wherein the performing of the denaturing of tobacco products is permitted. A warehouse keeper shall be liable for further operations with the denatured tobacco products.

5. Tobacco products (also such tobacco products that are imported from states that are not Member States of the European Union) shall be considered denatured if such products conform to the requirements of these Regulations and are supplied in accordance with the procedures specified by these Regulations. If tobacco products (also such tobacco products that are imported from states that are not Member States of the European Union) do not conform to the requirements of these Regulations or are not supplied in accordance with the procedures specified by these Regulations, excise duty shall be applied thereto in accordance with the Law On Excise Duty. In such case, a tax warehousekeeper shall be liable for the payment of excise duty.

6. The supply of denatured tobacco products shall be permitted only to such merchants, farms and other undertakings that use denatured tobacco products in the production of soil improvement products, plant protection products and similar horticultural products and who have received an appropriate certification of the Ministry of Agriculture.

7. A tax warehouse keeper shall not pay duty for denatured tobacco products if such warehouse keeper submits the following documents to the State Revenue Service prior to the delivery of the denatured tobacco products:

7.1. a written submission wherein the following is indicated:

The referred to document shall indicate the type and amount of the denatured tobacco products.

8. The State Revenue Service shall examine the documents submitted by a warehouse keeper and shall issue a permit for the supply of denatured tobacco products within a time period of three working days.
