Landfill Tax

Legislation for a Landfill Tax for Scotland was passed in the Scottish Parliament on 17 December, paving the way for it to be introduced in 2015.  This will replace the current UK system in Scotland, with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) set to be responsible for the collection of the tax on behalf of Revenue Scotland.
 
The Scottish Government intends to use the legislation to allow for tax to be recovered from landfill sites where waste has been disposed of illegally to deter illegal dumping and encourage responsible and regulated disposal of waste.  Scottish Ministers also intend to use powers to establish an enhanced replacement for the Landfill Communities Fund in Scotland from April 2015.
