HMRC has this week published DRAFT Legislation that will be introduced to establish a Plastic Packaging Tax, starting April 2022. The government has now published a draft of the legislation for technical consultation which sets out the key features of the tax, including:

  • the £200 per tonne tax rate for packaging with less than 30% recycled plastic
  • the registration threshold of 10 tonnes of plastic packaging produced in or imported into the UK per annum
  • the scope of the tax by definition of the type of taxable product and recycled content
  • the exemption for producers and importers of small quantities of plastic packaging
  • who will be liable to pay the tax and need to register with HMRC
  • how the tax will be collected, recovered and enforced
  • how the tax will be relieved on exports
