Important news on registering alcohol containers

As of February 22, 2024, AGLC will no longer register alcohol containers with the BCMB on behalf of the liquor agencies. We are currently experiencing system issues that may potentially delay the alcohol container registration process. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are actively working to resolve the issue. Learn More

Report to the Canada Revenue Agency

As a liquor manufacturer, you are licensed under the federal Excise Act. Every reporting period, you must:

  1. File the necessary paperwork with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to ensure you comply with the Excise Act and have accounted for and paid your Excise Duties.
  2. Whenever you submit your Excise Duty Return to the CRA, retain the returns for review by AGLC and CRA upon request.

For more information about what the CRA requires under the Excise Act, see the Canada Revenue Agency website.
