The solution

What are Digital Tax Stamps?

Tax stamps are paper based labels or markings, with complex multi-layered security features. The technology that the Ministry of Industry is implementing through the Digital Tax Stamp Program, integrates the traditional stamps with advanced track and trace technology and audit systems. This helps the Government to regain control over the goods that are sold in the DRC territory as Digital Tax Stamps provide visible proof that excise taxes have been paid, and allow potentially harmful counterfeit products to be distinguished from genuine, certified products.

It is important to mention that other state institutions will be able to connect to the same system to have production and import statistics.

Pilot Implementation

The nation-wide implementation of the Digital Tax Stamp Program will be rolled-out in phases, starting with a Phase 1 Implementation in Haut-Katanga province.

Goods affected by the Digital Tax Stamp Program include:
• Locally manufactured goods, starting with: alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages
• Other goods as gazetted by the Commissioner at later stages

Pilot provinces

Transition Period for the Pilot Phase

The Provincial Ministry in charge of Industry grants a transition period to any manufacturer and importer, to allow their registration, reception and processing of their stamp order, as well as to prepare the factory.
