HM Treasury / HM Revenue & Customs: Single Use Plastics Tax Consultation 

 

The UK Government budget in 2018 declared the intent to introduce a new tax “to encourage the use of recycled plastic”. This consultation which can be found here: (Plastic_Packaging_Tax_-_Consultation.pdf) Is part of the process. The closing date for submissions is Thursday 20 August.

To ensure the maximum impact for the AVA submission we are greatly dependent on you responding in numbers. The more submissions received by HMRC, the greater the impact. Numbers are key, with NGOs sending their response to their members to top and tail. Please remember every single response is read

The AVA Environment Committee has been preparing our submission. You can use this to make your own. Simply extract the information from our document (click here), add your own company name instead of the AVA and make your own submission using the document which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/plastic-packaging-tax-policy-design.

Whether your business is directly involved with plastic packaging and product or not, this is your industry. This is your chance to make your voice heard!

With the potential of a £200 per tonne tax on all plastics containing less than 30% recycled material (and the EU calling for an €800 per tonne levy), this will have an obvious impact on our industry.

Take action now!
