Tax stamp measure affecting alcoholic drinks exports to the Dominican Republic

in Dominican Republic

Trade barrier summary

Government tax authorities in the Dominican Republic are looking to implement a tax stamp measure which would create a Technical Barrier to Trade (TBT) for alcohol spirits drinks exporters to the market. Three main problems associated with the tax stamp measure are: (1) Logistics: it may add some 15-20 additional steps to the current import or distribution process (2) it may favour local companies over exports to the market. (3) it may create potential for unfair application of tax - exporters to the market, in may be required to pay taxes before the goods are exported to the Market.
