By Andy Fay • Thursday 17th April 2014

Struggled with your Packaging Regulations Submission this year?


If your company is obligated to comply with the Packaging Waste Regulations you may be breathing a sigh of relief that it all over (for this year at least) or you may be still panicking and working to complete your data to submit during the late submission period. For KES this is often when we hear from new customers about the trouble they have had or are having submitting data in the year and are asked about what we can do to help.

So before everyone goes on Easter break here’s a short guide about what to do if you’ve struggled with you Packaging Regulations submission.

First of all, are you...

  • Confused and need with understanding your company’s obligations?

Not sure if you’ll meet the threshold this year?

You are required to register with the Environment Agency, and submit an annual ‘packaging tax return’ regarding how much packaging you have introduced to the UK if you:

  • Have a UK ‘presence’ (site, office, companies house registration or similar)
  • Have a turnover above £2 million
  • Handle more than 50 tonnes of packaging per year (excluding exports)

We are more than happy to take you through a short process to see whether you fit this criteria for late submission or for 2015 (2014) submission.

If you do have any questions or are still uncertain whether you are affected feel free to get in touch or if you prefer head over to our website and take a look at our 60 second overview slide show.
