Legislation provides for the following types of licenses for the circulation of liquids and the amount of state license fees:

  • E-Liquid Manufacturing License - UAH 780; 

  • E-Liquid Wholesale License - UAH 780;

  • E-Liquid Retail Trade License - UAH 780 for each retail point (regardless of its location).

You need to choose the type of license based on the type of business activity you will carry out. It should be understood that each license is issued for a separate type of activity, and therefore, in the case of production and sale of goods, you must obtain a license for both types of activities (unlike the rules for alcohol/alcoholic beverages licensing).

The period for obtaining an e-liquid license is 10 days following the date of submission of all documents.

The license is issued for 1 year (retail sales), or 5 years (production/wholesale).

The e-liquid license fees shall be paid before submitting the application.

Paying for the entire validity period of the license in a single payment is prohibited, so it is necessary to pay the official fee annually. In case of late payment, the licensing authority may suspend the license, which means a ban on such activities for the subject.

What do you need to know about e-liquid licensing?

E-liquids are defined as a mixture of chemicals, which may or may not contain nicotine, used to create vapor in electronic smoking devices.

Since 2020, any operations involving liquids used in electronic cigarettes is subject to licensing. That is, if you have a vape shop and you sell not only e-cigarettes and vapes, but also liquids for these devices or even ingredients for liquids - you need a license.

Please note! The sale or manufacture of e-liquids without a license is subject to a fine of 200 percent of the value of available products, but not less than UAH 20,000 for the producers of e-liquids and not less than UAH 17,000 for retailers.

Where can you get a license for vape and e-cigarette liquids?

This depends on the type of license.

To obtain a license for the production of liquids, you must contact the State Tax Service of Ukraine.

To obtain a license for retail or wholesale trade in liquids, you must contact the territorial bodies of the State Tax Service of Ukraine.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Can I get a license in a place other than the place of residence/registration?

Yes, you can. The license is issued at the place of opening a sales outlet.

Can I sell e-liquids without using a cash register?

No, retail sale of excisable goods requires you to use a cash register and register it with the tax authorities.

Do I need to obtain a license for import/export of e-liquids in Ukraine?

Today, there is no separate license for import/export of e-liquids. However, it is necessary to obtain a license for the relevant type of activity in Ukraine. Therefore, if the business entity will supply e-liquids to other business entities - it is enough to get a Wholesale License. If the business entity sells e-liquids through its own stores - only a Retail Trade License is needed.

What are the requirements for e-liquid retail points of sale?

Retail trade must be conducted in the premises with the area of 20 square meters minimum. It can be a cafe, bar, etc., the only thing is that the premises must be equipped with appropriate sales counters, equipment, showcases.
