Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) Update

Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) Update

If you have exceeded the 10 tonne threshold and registered for Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) you must submit your PPT return and pay any tax due by 29 July 2022

With the deadline less than 2 weeks away we wanted to share some helpful reminders on completing PPT returns and submitting payments. 

Important information – first returns and payments: 

  • Your PPT return needs to include plastic packaging your business manufactured and/or imported into the UK from when you became liable to 30 June 2022 (the first accounting period).
  • You must keep accounts and records to support the information provided when you complete your quarterly PPT return.
  • Your accounts must show how you have worked out the figures you submit on your PPT return, and your records must show the evidence to support these figures. 
  • You must keep your accounts and records for at least 6 years from the end of the accounting period, and record weight in tonnes, kilograms and grams. 
  • You will need to pay any tax due through your online PPT account. You can pay via Direct Debit, Bacs, CHAPS, Debit/Corporate credit card or Faster Payments. 
  • For a reminder of these steps and all return and payment dates for 2022-23, download the HMRC PPT flyer
