We have been advised that HMRC is seeking further consultation on the Plastic Tax that is due to come into effect in April 2022.
The Federation is working with other trade bodies from the packaging industry to respond to the consultation.
On initial reading of the document, it would appear that HMRC will not allow any wastage at point of re-pack to be off set. This will put UK manufactured product at a disadvantage to imported finished products.
We will seek further guidance from our other trade bodies in how we can lobby Government to rectify this imbalance.
