Home / Policy / Environment and Sustainability / Plastic Packaging Tax – submitting returns and reusable plastic crates update
This information is for PAGB members only and is not to be reproduced, repeated or circulated without PAGB’s permission.
If you produce or import 10 tonnes or more of plastic packaging within a 12-month period, you may need to register for Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) – even if your packaging contains 30% or more recycled plastic.
Submit your return for the 1 July to 30 September period by 31 October 2022.
With the deadline only a week away, HMRC have provided some helpful reminders on completing PPT returns and making payments:
After reviewing information received from industry regarding reusable plastic crates, HMRC have determined that reusable plastic crates fall within the definition of transport packaging.This means they are exempt from PPT when imported filled with goods into the UK. These items are not exempt from PPT when they are manufactured in the UK or imported unfilled. Updated guidance reflecting the position on reusable plastic crates can be found on GOV.UK.If you have previously accounted for reusable plastic crates on a PPT return where they were used to import goods into the UK, you will be able to amend your return by signing into your Plastic Packaging Account and selecting ‘View or amend submitted returns’. If you are due a repayment as a result of this, you can request one online via Submit your Plastic Packaging Tax return – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
Guidance for PPT is available on HMRC’s GOV.UK pages. They continue to enhance the PPT guidance pages to help address your frequently asked questions.Recent updates include:
