Home / Policy / Environment and Sustainability / Plastic Packaging Tax: March monthly update
HMRC’s Plastic Packaging Tax team have provided this latest update:As announced at Spring Budget, the PPT rate will be increased from £200 per tonne to £210.82 per tonne in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) from 1 April 2023.This change will maintain the real term value of the price incentive to use recycled plastic and supports the government’s environmental goals.The new rate will apply to all plastic packaging manufactured or imported into the UK on or after 1 April 2023. Any packaging that has been manufactured or imported prior to 1 April 2023 will be charged at the existing rate of £200 per tonne.You can read further guidance here.The government is also bringing forward technical changes to PPT penalties via the Finance Bill. The changes will ensure that the tax operates as intended and that taxpayers are treated fairly and consistently. The changes will simplify the late payment penalty regime for PPT and will apply to all late payments in relation to accounting periods from 1 April 2023 onwards.
HMRC remain committed to the importance of making clear where Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) has been charged to encourage greater use of recycled plastic. Where possible, we encourage businesses liable to PPT to provide information about the tax paid on invoices to business customers.However, we will no longer be introducing this as a legal requirement.
We also encourage you to work with your business customers to try and increase, wherever possible, the amount of recycled plastic they use in their plastic packaging.Please note that this communication is generic and sent to all stakeholders signed up to the PPT mailing list.
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.
Guidance for PPT is available at our collection page. We continue to enhance the PPT guidance pages to help address your frequently asked questions.HMRC has produced the following resources to support businesses:
