You manufacture excise goods and/or goods liable to consumer tax

Before you start manufacturing excise goods and/or goods liable to consumer tax in the Netherlands you always need: a 'Vergunning vervaardiging in een accijnsgoederenplaats' (Authorisation to manufacture goods in an tax warehouse) and/or a 'Vergunning inrichting voor de vervaardiging van verbruiksbelastinggoederen' (Authorisation for an establishment to manufacture goods that are liable to consumer tax).

The manufactured excise goods or goods liable to consumer tax are stored under suspension of the excise duty in your tax warehouse or in your establishment for goods liable to consumer tax. You do not have to pay excise duty or consumer tax until you remove the goods from your tax warehouse or your establishment for goods liable to consumer tax. You will pay the excise duty or consumer tax periodically in arrears.

The Authorisation states among other things the location where you may manufacture and store excise goods or goods liable to consumer tax. (A house does not qualify as a location.)
