EMCS system to be mandatory for internal movements of tobacco, alcohol and hydrocarbons in Spain.


As of 1st July 2013, use of the EMCS system is to be extended to all shipments whose point of origin and destination fall within national territory in Spain. The system, designated INTERNAL EMCS, affects movements of all products subject to special taxation (alcohol, alcoholic beverages, tobacco and hydrocarbons), and replaces accompanying documents in paper format with electronic files that must be exchanged between the parties and declared to the pertinent Tax Authorities.

EMCS stands for Excise Movement Control System, created by the European Union to control movements of products subject to special duties (alcohol and alcoholic beverages, tobacco and hydrocarbons) between EU member States.

The system uses the technology associated with electronic data interchange, replacing the accompanying administrative documents in paper format by electronic messages which are exchanged between those involved in the movement of goods: Origin, destination, logistics and customs.

The use of this system, which is mandatory for intra-Community movements since 2011, will now be required for all movements subject to special taxation taking place within each country from July 1, 2013. The Spanish tax authority, on its www.emcs.es website, explicitly stipulates that “use of the EMCS system extends to shipments to and from locations in the internal Community territory, including from the point of importation […]”.

Since last February 12, the Spanish Tax Agency has had the test environment open for the draft presentation web service, so that it is now possible to start running preliminary tests.

Edicom, as a leading Electronic Data Interchange service provider, has solutions primed and ready to create the accompanying documents and process statements online to the Tax Authorities.

Our solutions automate the generation and sending of the different electronic files for integration with the in-house management systems of the various operators.

If you are sending or receiving products subject to excise duty, you will be affected by this system, even when the movements taking place do so exclusively within national territory.

Please contact us to prepare the launch of your Internal EMCS solution.
