For many, New Year is a time to start a-fresh, to take forward the positive aspects from 2015 and to tackle new challenges with a renewed enthusiasm and energy.
So why not kick start the New Year and get off on the right foot by making sure that your company is complying with the Packaging Regulations, a tax that many companies are totally unaware of and yet a legal obligation.
First of all, don’t panic. The Packaging Regulations only affect companies with a turnover above £2million and also handle goods that are surrounded by packaging, which can include raw materials, components and goods for re-sale.
But what is considered as packaging? We all view packaging as something different. In short, in terms of how the Regulations define packaging, its easier to say what isn’t. Essentially freight containers and lorries are not considered packaging. Which leaves everything else, from an aerosol, a pallet, a presentation box, a carrier bag, all the through to a cardboard box as packaging.
This of course makes life a little tricky. How do you calculate a packaging tax liability on so many different packaging types and materials?
Well the good news is you don’t have to, this is exactly where Kite can help. We help you understand the Packaging Regulations, how they affect your business and what you need to do to comply.

Kite Packaging is out in front in the race to reduce plastic in the environment
We’ve seen a hugely positive response to our 2019 initiative aimed at reducing the impact of plastics in the environment. We are well on our way to reaching our goal, with the initiative already delivering a 95 tonne plastic reduction. Our team launched the 120 tonne challenge at the start of 2019, setting ourselves and our customers the task of reducing plastic usage by a total of 120 tonnes by the end of the year.
