Wastepack webinar on packaging tax

Date(s) - 07/05/2020

Wastepack Webinar – Thursday 7th May at 10:30am


In the March budget, the Government announced a new consultation on packaging tax that is planned for 2022.  If you manufacture or import more than 10 tonnes of plastic packaging in a twelve month period, this will affect you and will increase your costs.

The closing date for comments on the consultation is 20 August 2020 (just put back from 20 May following lobbying)

 To explain more and keep our members informed we are pleased to announce that Wastepack are hosting a webinar for BHETA members on Thursday 7th May at 10:30am.

Join The Wastepack Group’s Policy Director, Paul Van Danzig, to find out more about the Plastic Packaging Tax who will be sharing information on the Government announcement that the tax on plastic packaging containing less than 30% recycled content will come into force in April 2022. Alongside this HMRC released a consultation on the detailed design and implementation of the tax which closes on 20 May.

During the session Paul will cover an overview of the Plastic Packaging Tax, looking at the scope, implications and the HMRC consultation. If you handle plastic packaging we recommend that you attend this webinar to keep abreast of the up and coming changes; it is important that you engage with the consultation as you may become jointly and severally liable as part of these new regulations.
