Welsh Landfill Disposals Tax Bill receives royal assent

printer Mail

The Landfill Disposals Tax (Wales) Bill received Royal Assent on 7 September 2017. Landfill disposals tax will replace landfill tax in Wales from April 2018.

Welsh finance secretary, Mark Drakeford, said: ‘A key difference between the existing landfill tax and landfill disposals tax is that our Act enables tax to be charged on unauthorised disposals of waste in order to provide a financial deterrent against undertaking this activity.’

The Welsh government is also establishing a landfill disposals tax communities scheme, to support local projects which promote or improve the social or environmental wellbeing of communities affected by the disposal of waste to landfill.
