Plastic Packaging Tax

16 February 2022 - 25 February 2022 Online

A new tax on plastic packaging manufactured in, or imported into the UK, that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic is being introduced from 1 April 2022.

Manufacturers or importers of plastic packaging, including importers of goods in packaging, will need to take action to prepare for the new tax.

The rate of tax will be £200 per metric tonne of plastic packaging.

Plastic packaging tax (PPT) is an environmental tax designed to provide a financial incentive for businesses to use recycled plastic in the manufacture of plastic packaging. The government envisages this will create greater demand for recycled plastic, stimulating increased levels of recycling of plastic waste and diverting it away from landfill or incineration.

On this webinar, Lee Wearing of Valpak, who are supporting NHS Supply Chain meet your reporting and payment obligations under PPT will take you through what you need to know about PPT, its potential impact on your business, and what NHS Supply Chain need from you, our supplier, to enable both you and us to comply with this new legislation.

The webinar will be run at 11am on both Wednesday 16 and Friday 25 February 2022, choose your preferred date when you register.
