Don’t delay - the first Plastic Packaging Tax return and payment deadline is now only three days away.

If you were liable to register between 1 April and 30 June 2022 you must submit your PPT return and pay any tax due by 29 July 2022.

For extra support read through the important information below, or watch one of our PPT webinar recordings on GOV.UK.

Important information – first returns and payments:

  • Your PPT return needs to include plastic packaging your business manufactured 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, including evidence of any exemptions from the tax and the recycled plastic content.
  • 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.
