The Treasury collects information about you in order to administer taxation and carry out other functions for which it is responsible (eg. National Insurance, customs and excise duties, property rates, social security benefits, state pensions and legal aid etc.), and for the detection and prevention of crime.
Whilst that information will primarily be provided by you, where the law allows we may also get information about you from other organisations, or give information about you to them. This may be to check the accuracy of the information provided, prevent or detect crime or protect public funds in other ways. These organisations may include other government departments, the police and other agencies.
To find out more about how we collect and use personal information, contact any of our offices or visit our website.

When vehicles are imported from outside the UK and Isle of Man, Customs and Excise must be satisfied that any VAT etc is secured before it can be registered and licensed for use on the road. More details can be found in Notice NOVA 3 MAN (guide to procedures), which can be found in the section containing Public Notices.
Alcohol Wholesaler Registration Scheme (AWRS)
From April 2017, trade buyers who purchase alcohol from wholesalers with the aim of selling it on to their own customers should, as part of their own due diligence processes, check that the wholesaler is registered with the Isle of Man Treasury or HMRC, to ensure that the wholesaler they are purchasing from has been approved. Since 1 April 2016, alcohol wholesalers have been required to be registered. For more details see Notice 2001 MAN in the section containing Public Notices.
Machine Games Duty
Machine Games Duty came into force on the Isle of Man on 1 February 2013.
