Is your software ready for the Plastic Tax on the 1st April?

Is your software ready for the Plastic Tax on the 1st April?

Did you know Merlin have always been ready for the Plastic Packaging Tax?

At the Budget 2021, the Government confirmed the introduction of a plastic packaging tax from 1st April 2022. Legislation to establish the Plastic Packaging Tax has been introduced into the Finance Bill 2021. The tax aims to encourage greater use of recycled plastic and help tackle plastic waste.

  • The UK-wide Plastic Packaging Tax will take effect from 1st April 2022.
  • The tax will apply to plastic packaging manufactured in or imported into the UK containing less than 30% recycled content.
  • The tax will be charged at a rate of £200 per tonne.
  • Businesses are exempt from paying the tax if they manufacture or import less than 10 tonnes of plastic packaging in a 12 month period.
Did you know?

Merlin has the capability to record packaging analysis, which can be accessed via the ‘Pack’ icon in Stock Maintenance.

Merlin’s in-built Packaging Waste helps you meet your legislative obligations. However, if you are aiming to recharge your Plastic Packaging Tax charges on to your customers, we can offer a small optional development to accommodate this.
