Tax, Revenue & Excise Stamps

Reclaiming Revenue from Today’s Counterfeiters

When dealing with exported or regulated materials, counterfeiting comes at the expense of government authorities, who miss out on proper payment for taxed or excised goods.

At Ashton Potter, we provide highly secure tax, revenue, and excise stamps with mass serialization and data management functionality to support the world’s governments and law enforcement agencies in reclaiming and increasing revenue.
