According to article 302 G of the French General Tax Code (CGI), any person who carries out the following activities must operate as an authorised warehousekeeper:
– produces or processes spirits, intermediate products, sparking and still wines, other fermented beverages and beers
– receives, stores or ships tobacco products manufactured under suspensive customs conditions
– stores spirits, intermediate products, sparkling and still wines, other fermented beverages and beers that it has received or purchased and that are destined for shipment or resale in quantities that exceed the threshold set by decree for a single recipient or purchaser.
We have obtained accreditation for each of our sites, meaning we can store wines imported from around the world exempt of duties and taxes until they are released for sale in France, and where a prior customs clearance process will be carried out with Dartess’ specialist partners.
We are accredited to manage warehouses under the Export Customs Suspensive Regime (RFSE). Here at Dartess, we offer this unique opportunity for fine wine traders, allowing customers to store their products in optimal conditions, exempt from taxes and duties, for an unlimited period of time. Eventually, these wines will need to be exported outside France.
