DELAY TO PLASTICS TAX CONSULTATION COMMON SENSE

DELAY TO PLASTICS TAX CONSULTATION COMMON SENSE

Following a series of discussions with the Treasury concerning the practicalities, it has confirmed a delay to the current plastics tax consultation until 20 August 2020 from 20 May.

Executive Director of the FPA Martin Kersh says: “This is a welcome decision based on common sense.  It would have been very difficult for businesses to meet the current deadline with so many environment managers currently furloughed and our members manufacturing capacity re-directed to producing much needed PPE.   The due process for consultation has also been disrupted with the cancellation of stakeholder round table meetings.   We look forward to participating in the process once it is reinstated. “
