Stop the HMRC's proposals to raise the level of tax for trommel fines up from £2.50/t to £72/t. The consequences if this goes ahead are devastating, both environmentally and economically. Waste management companies will not be able to afford the cost of tipping the waste resulting in job losses and closure. The existing waste that cannot be tipped legally, may well be disposed of illegally. We demand the HMRC take in to account the effect of such a sharp rise in taxation.
This will put companies out of business and people out of jobs and another government department will shell out on unemployment benifits. so as I see it the HMRC stand to gain and the Dept of Employment stand to loose. Throw in the loss of business rates and taxation from the company and it starts to look pretty grim for government as well. The HMRC need to STOP and re-think about the consequences of thier actions.
£72 PER TONNE WILL CLOSE THE RECYCLING INDUSTRY DOWN, THERE MUST BE SOME MIDDLE GROUND
