Who can claim a levy credit

You can claim a levy credit on your Soft Drinks Industry Levy returns for drinks that you've paid the levy on and are:

  1.  

    •     exported by you or someone else in the supply chain

  2.  

    •     reasonably expected to be exported by someone else

You can only claim the credit if you've registered for the levy and have paid the levy on those drinks directly to HMRC.

You cannot claim the credit if you've exported the drinks further down the supply chain and have not paid the levy directly to HMRC on those drinks yourself.

Example

  1.  

    (1)     Company A packages the soft drinks and pays the levy to HMRC on those drinks.

  2.  

    (2)     Company B buys the soft drinks from company A and supplies them to Company C.

  3.  

    (3)     Company C exports them to their customer who is based outside of the UK.

Only Company A can claim the export credit on those soft drinks.
