UK legislation to tackle alcohol fraud

The UK Government has announced its intention to proceed with the introduction of wholesaler registration and due diligence following the recent consultation “Alcohol Fraud Next Steps”. It is still intended that the Government will publish the full summary of responses to the consultation in January. The wholesaler registration will be legislated for as part of the Finance Bill 2015 process, with a formal consultation on actual draft legislation next autumn. Following legislation, applications will be invited to register in early 2016 and the full compliance requirements of the scheme would then go live spring 2017.
