HMRC issues consultation on Landfill tax: Liability of waste 'fines'

Consultation on Proposals for the new 'loss on ignition' test that will help landfill site operators determine the correct tax liability of fines.

The Government announced in Budget 2014 that it will introduce a ‘loss on ignition’ test by April 2015. The lower rate of landfill tax will apply where fines meet an LOI threshold of 10% or less. This consultation sets out a proposal for how the testing regime will operate, including processes for the testing of samples and record-keeping requirements. The consultation will be of particular interest to operators of landfill sites and mechanical treatment plants and other waste industry interests including representative bodies in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
