Retailers have been warned to clear through non-compliant stock ahead of the 20 May track-and-trace deadline.
Figures from HMRC released to betterRetailing show that 40,590 retailers and wholesalers had successfully registered 62,384 sites to be able to legally sell and buy tobacco by the end of 2019.
The government authority said: “We expect that the vast majority of businesses who need to register for EOIDs and FIDs have now done so.”
Despite most stores being registered with three months to go until the deadline, a betterRetailing survey of 39 shop owners showed 70% still had non-compliant stock in their gantry.
A further 10% were unsure whether they had non-compliant stock.
