Tobacco Products Tax

Information for traders

Tobacco Products Tax (TPT) is payable if you make, process or bring tobacco products into the country. You must also comply with certain legal requirements and conditions as set down by Revenue. Traders should familiarise themselves fully with these requirements, which are set out in Tobacco Products Tax Manual.

Ireland operates a tax stamp system for cigarettes and roll your own tobacco products. Cigarettes and roll your own tobacco products must bear an Irish Tax Stamp. Otherwise, the products are liable to be seized by Revenue.

For further information about the Tax Stamp Programme, please contact Revenue's Large Corporates Division.
