Plastic packaging tax - update

HMRC have published a policy paper covering the introduction of a new plastic packaging tax, which is expected to take effect from April 2022.
 
The tax will apply to plastic packaging produced in, or imported into, the UK, that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic. Plastic packaging is packaging that is predominantly plastic by weight. It will not apply to any plastic packaging which contains at least 30% recycled plastic, or any packaging which is not predominantly plastic by weight. Imported plastic packaging will be liable to the tax, whether the packaging is unfilled or filled.
