(d)  as regards every millilitre of any alcoholic beverage he acquires, except beer, a specific duty of 0.089 of a cent and a duty equal to 7.5% of the aggregate of the specific duty, the sale price paid, or that would be payable if the alcoholic beverage were purchased, and an amount equal to the tax that would be paid or payable under Part IX of the Excise Tax Act if that tax were calculated only on the aggregate of the sale price and the specific duty, determined without reference to the input tax credit provided for in that Part that would relate to that alcoholic beverage;
(e)  as regards every millilitre of any alcoholic beverage he makes and disposes of for consumption in his establishment, except beer, a specific duty of 0.089 of a cent and a duty equal to 7.5% of the aggregate of the specific duty, the average sale price, determined by regulation, in force at the time of the disposition, and an amount equal to the tax that would be paid or payable under Part IX of the Excise Tax Act if that tax were calculated only on the aggregate of the sale price and the specific duty, determined without reference to the input tax credit provided for in that Part that would relate to that alcoholic beverage.

The duties provided for in paragraphs b and d of the said section must be paid by the retailer to the supplier, directly or through the authorized agent of the latter, each time the retailer acquires alcoholic beverages.
However, where the duties provided for in paragraphs b and d of the said section are not paid upon the acquisition of the alcoholic beverages, the retailer must render an account immediately to the Minister in prescribed form and furnish any information or document required by the Minister and, at the same time, remit to the Minister the payable license duties.
The duties provided for in paragraphs c and e of the said section must be paid to the Minister by the retailer who shall, for each reporting period, where the retailer is required to file a return under Division IV of Chapter VIII of Title I of the Act respecting the Québec sales tax (chapter T-0.1), render an account to the Minister in prescribed form containing the prescribed information and file the account with and as prescribed by the Minister, even if no duty is payable for that reporting period.

(2)  B is the number of days in the particular reporting period ;
(3)  C is the total of all amounts each of which is the total of the duties provided for in section 79.11 that the person has collected or should have collected under subparagraphs b and d of the first paragraph of that section and that the person is required to pay under subparagraphs c and e of the first paragraph of that section, the specific tax and the amount equal to the specific tax, if any, that the person has collected or should have collected under Title II of the Act respecting the Québec sales tax for a reporting period ending in the twelve-month period immediately preceding the particular reporting period ; and

No retailer is entitled to any reimbursement of the duties paid by him in respect of an amount that is refunded or credited to him under Part VIII or IX of the Excise Tax Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter E-15), unless the amount is an amount described in section 232 or 261 of the said Act.
1990, c. 60, s. 44.
79.16. Every person referred to in section 79.11 who does not hold a licence in force is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine equal to twice the duties payable under this division.

79.17. A retailer who acquires, within the scope of his operations under his retailer’s licence, alcoholic beverages from a person other than a supplier or his authorized agent is guilty of an offence and is liable, in addition to the payment of the duties and any other penalty provided for by this Act, to a fine of not less than $300 nor more than $2,000 and, for any subsequent offence, of not less than $1,000 nor more than $5,000; in the latter case, the court may, in addition to the fine and costs, condemn the offender to imprisonment for a maximum of three months.
