This chapter discusses the introduction and implementation of the excise tax. The excise duties were formally announced to the Long Parliament on 16 May 1643. An ordinance was subsequently passed on 22 July stipulating that duties were to be renewed on a monthly basis. Treasurers in London had to provide warrants for the allocation of excise revenue, while parliament had auditors to keep track of and retain control of the flow of funds.
