Distillery Regulatory Compliance

Audits & Inspections

We offer comprehensive Distilled Spirits Plant Audit Services, meticulously designed to ensure your operation not only meets but exceeds industry standards, particularly in the realms of excise tax compliance, tax classes, and adherence to production standards for reduced tax rates.

Excise Tax Compliance: Navigating the complexities of distilled spirits excise tax can be daunting. Our expert team conducts thorough audits of your excise tax processes, ensuring accurate calculation, reporting, and payment. We delve into the details of your production, storage, and sales records to identify any potential issues or areas for optimization. Our goal is to safeguard your distillery against any tax-related discrepancies and to ensure full compliance with federal and state regulations, thereby avoiding costly penalties and ensuring financial integrity.

Tax Rate Management: In the distilled spirits industry, tax rates vary significantly based on the proof of the spirit and eligibility for the small producer tax credit. Our audit services include a thorough examination of your product line to ensure accurate classification based on proof, ensuring compliance with the appropriate tax rate for each spirit. This detailed analysis is crucial in optimizing your tax obligations, as different proofs result in different tax rates. Additionally, we provide specialized guidance on qualifying and applying for the small producer tax credit, a significant financial advantage for eligible distilleries. Our expertise in these areas not only ensures compliance but also strategically positions your business to take full advantage of available tax benefits, directly impacting your profitability and overall business strategy.

Production Standards for Reduced Tax Rate: The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act has provided opportunities for reduced tax rates for small producers, but leveraging these benefits requires strict adherence to certain production standards. Our audit services include a comprehensive review of your production processes to ensure you qualify for these reduced rates. We assess your production volume, equipment, and techniques to certify that they align with the stipulations for reduced tax rates. Our team offers recommendations and strategies to maintain or achieve compliance with these standards, ultimately leading to significant cost savings.

Our Distilled Spirits Plant Audit Services are designed to provide peace of mind and financial benefits. By partnering with us, you gain the assurance that your distillery operates within legal boundaries and capitalizes on available financial advantages, all while maintaining the highest standards of compliance and operational excellence.
