Duty Management

Integral to Bevica Essentials is the treatment and control of Excise Duty, also known as Duty Management. Save time and money, let Bevica Essentials manage and control your duty and VAT liability to HMRC. Items, transactions, and stock are set up and posted according to HMRC rules, with automatic calculation and accrual of duty values.

Easy to Manage

From the moment an item is created, it holds the information necessary to purchase, produce, manage transfer and sell both Duty-Free and Duty Paid. Duty enhancements extend to making it as easy as possible to manage duty changes, sales, and purchase pricing. Date ranged duty tables hold the reference information needed and inventory logic to recognise when clearances to Duty Paid are needed, Bevica creates the necessary stock movements uplifting inventory cost and accruing Duty.

Real-World Stock Management

Whether you are using a third-party warehouse or your own, stock always reflects the real world. Stock can be receipted Duty Free, then depending on its destination, transferred to another bonded store or exported, with no duty implication, or cleared to Duty Paid.

Financial Posting Integration

Dimensions provide unlimited flexibility in how you set up your chart of accounts for reporting and analysis. You can use them to rationalise your nominal account structure. You can view financial data by, for example, cost centre, types of customer (on-trade/off-trade/multiple/independent), types of product (finished, raw material, point of sale) or create a P&L for a tasting or event.

Intelligent Scheduling

Aside from the financial uncertainty that excise duty changes cause, it never need be an issue operationally… have you stayed late in the office changing sales prices, do you need to revert to your calculator and excel to update item costs? With Bevica Essentials duty management could not be simpler. To make sure the new duty rates are applied at the correct time enter the new rate per Duty Code, its start date and let Bevica do the rest.

Sale Pricing

Managing your sales prices need not be a headache. Bevica Essentials’ duty management software applies the most specific pricing, making it as easy and transparent as possible to set the prices you want to charge. Inherent duty logic means that you have complete flexibility in how you create and manage prices; either Duty Free or Duty Paid with the system calculating the correct price at time of sale. Duty management has never been easier.

Pricing Flexibility

For any price you can set valid start / end dates, product size and quantity breaks, incl. / excl. VAT. Most specific pricing hierarchy lets you select at what level any price is to be applied: for a specific campaign, customer, a group of customers, or globally.


Bevica’s duty management software allows you to stay compliant with Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI) requirements and the Authorised Wholesalers Registration Scheme (AWRS), record every relevant AWRS URN and the last time it was checked as part of your essential duty management requirements.
