New landfill tax measures expected to raise £145m


By their very nature illegal waste sites operate undetected, and the perpetrator either goes bust or disappears, pocketing the 'gate fee'. Given that they already incur the risks of fines and imprisonment I can't see this tax measure will make any difference Any landowner that sub-lets needs to police any waste activity on behalf of the EA or risk the consequences It is indicative of HMRC's wider interest in waste activity and actions on landfill tax interpretation on permitted sites nonetheless
