Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) Update

By March 24, 2023No Comments

Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) was introduced on 1st April 2022, however if you manufacture or import 10 or more tonnes of plastic packaging within a 12-month period you must register for PPT on GOV.UK, even if your packaging contains 30% or more recycled plastic.

PPT also applies to plastic packaging that is imported already filled with goods – but you only need to account for the weight of the plastic packaging towards the 10-tonne threshold.

If you’re liable to register or have already registered, from 1 April 2023 you must submit your PPT return and pay any tax due by 28 April 2023.
