This webinar is an overview of the new PPT legislation from an importer perspective. The webinar will be led by the BPIF with Jon Clark, General Manager of BPIF Cartons and *Lucy Sutcliffe, Partner - Tax Advisory from our financial partner Azets. 

The webinar will cover:

  1. Inco terms - what they are, and which ones apply to your business. 
  2. SIC Codes, profiling etc.
  3. Information flow up and down the supply chain. What is reasonable and what can be done if supplier/customer refuses to comply.


The UK Government will introduce a new Plastics Packaging Tax (PPT) on the 1st April 2022.  After this time tax at the rate of £200 per tonne will have to be paid on any plastic packaging that falls within the tax rules. The tax applies when the plastic packaging component does not contain a minimum of 30% recycled content. If you manufacture or import packaging, you will need to take steps to establish your status within the tax. Companies that manufacture or import more than 10 tonnes of plastic in 12 months will have to register and keep additional records to calculate and pay the tax if they are the company performing the last substantial modification before filling, packing and labelling. As printing has been designated as a 'substantial modification' many packaging producers will undertake the last substantial modification and be required to pay the tax.
