It seeks views on the design of the tax on plastic packaging announced at Budget 2018, and effective from April 2022. The consultation outlines the government’s proposal for how the tax will work and contains a number of questions relating to this. For example, which packaging should be in scope of the tax, how to assess recycled content, and which businesses will be liable for the tax.
This consultation from the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) runs from 18 February to 12 May 2019.
