Treasury consult on plastic packaging tax
13 May 2020
Treasury extend the scope of the plastic packaging tax to imported filled packaging. Consultation deadline extended to 20th August
Treasury have released their second round of consultation for the plastic packaging tax. The deadline for this consultation has been extended to the 20th August 2020, recognising the impact of COVID-19 on businesses and their ability to response.
BEAMA will be responding to this consultation as well as supporting a position from the Joint Trade Association. We intend to develop our response before the August deadline and would like to have a draft by the end of June. Please send comments to email@example.com by the 16th June. There will be scope to contribute to the final BEAMA position latter, but early input ensures we can input into the joint industry response
