DianeF posted a topic in Help WantedALERT! Impending U.S. Government Shutdown could affect access to TTB website Due to the possible impending government shutdown you may have read about in the news, it is possible that access to TTB’s website could be severely restricted or cut off for DSPs while the shutdown is in effect. Therefore, if you need copies of your permits, registrations, formulas, COLAs or other documents that reside on the TTB system, it is advised that distilleries log on and download those items today!

I (we) are about 98% done with our 1st DSP application, just one more stumbling block...I think. We are going to fall under the new bond requirements: "ELIMINATION OF BOND REQUIREMENTS FOR SMALL BEVERAGE MANUFACTURERS As of January 1, 2017, if you are the proprietor of a brewery, distilled spirits plant, or winery owing not more than $50,000 in excise taxes in the previous year, and you expect to owe not more than $50,000 in excise taxes in the current year on beer, distilled spirits, or wine, you may no longer be required to hold a bond. Please see our Bond and Filing Changes Home Page for more details." However, in the application I see that this TTB Form 5000.18 Change in Bond (Consent of Surety) form keeps populating as a required form. Do I still need to fill this out? Why do I need to fill this out? And if anyone has been in a similar situation how did it go for you, how long did it take? Thanks in advance, cheers.
Hello, We are brand new distillery recently licensed by the FED and working on our state license. I expect to have it done by mid-January and will then be off and running. Our operation is starting off very small so I am interested in simple solutions when they can be obtained (but I have not found one yet for this exercise) One of the major hurdles it seems everyone faces is taking the time to track daily activities and then complete the monthly and quarterly reports. We use Quickbooks for our accounting software but I am interested in what others are doing to comply with the regulations on monthly reports as well as daily logs. It seems many are using QB Manufacturing or POS and there are others that use the online distillingsolutions product. Any comments on other solutions and / or how to integrate this into your daily logs. Are you keeping paper logs and then re-entering the information into the computer on a regular basis? What has been your success with these systems? Thanks for the help in advance! Ryan Yellow Rose Distilling
