Tuesday, 27 September 2022 | Planning for plastic packaging taxes in Italy and Spain (11:00 am CEST)

The new plastic packaging tax (PPT) in Italy is due to come into effect on 1 January 2023 – the same date as the new PPT in Spain. Recently, the Spanish government released a document answering some of the frequently asked questions from businesses, pointing toward the nuances and complexity of the new tax. 

During the webcast, panelists will discuss the FAQ document issued in Spain and how this might impact preparation practices.  With 1 January 2023 approaching quickly, we will discuss leveraging experience from PPT implementation in the UK. In addition, we will share some of the lessons learned from our experiences with companies preparing for the new taxes in Spain and Italy to help you get ready for the compliance requirements.

An outlook on expected developments globally will also be shared. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Join us for a discussion on:

  • Update on the Spain PPT and the experience so far
  • Practical operational considerations for Italy
  • Leveraging lessons learnt from the UK PPT implementation for Spain and Italy
  • Global outlook and new developments
  • Frequently asked questions and emerging leading practices

Speakers will include EY professionals from across Europe with a focus on plastic packaging taxes and regulations.

If the timing doesn’t work for you, please register and you’ll receive the replay for you to view at your own convenience.

On the topic of sustainability taxes, the team are also holding a webcast on 26 September 2022 on the EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism – click here to register

We look forward to seeing you!
