Who does the Plastic Packaging Tax affect?

The Plastic Packaging Tax affects businesses that:

  • Manufacture plastic packaging components in the UK
  • Import plastic packaging into the UK (all businesses will need to track their packaging volumes)
  • Carry out a substantial modification on a piece of plastic packaging
  • Exceed the 10-tonne threshold

These businesses will need to register with HMRC and then submit plastic tax declarations to HMRC on a quarterly basis.

Where packaging is exempt, exported, or not liable, businesses will need to provide supporting evidence and declare accordingly.

Please note: There are exemptions for certain types of plastic packaging. These are complex, but ERP can help!
