Environmental Taxes Handbook

(Second Edition)

By Barbara Bell

Environmental policies at both national and global levels have never been more important, and environmental taxes are a key part of any such policy, influencing business decisions and strategies. The Environmental Tax Handbook, written by the UK's leading adviser on Environmental Taxation, is a comprehensive and informative guide to the UK's established environmental taxes, such as the Climate Change Levy, the Landfill Tax, the Aggregates Levy, and the Air Passenger Duty. The book also covers the significant changes to taxing carbon in recent years, including the introduction of the carbon price floor and the carbon reduction commitment, as well as the EU emissions trading scheme. It explains, in clear and concise terms, the operation of each of these taxes, so that those called on to account for (or advise on) them will have a clear understanding of their compliance requirements and how these will affect their business. It also deals with some of the more complex and challenging aspects, such as how landfill tax applies to certain materials. The Environmental Tax Handbook gives practical guidance, as well as statutory and case law background, and will be useful for accountants, lawyers, and tax advisers. It will also help finance/tax managers in businesses with direct responsibility for environmental taxes, including waste management companies, quarries, airlines, and utility companies. It provides students and others interested in the development of environmental taxation in the UK a deeper understanding of the way in which these taxes seek to achieve environmental objectives. This second edition now covers carbon price floor, carbon reduction commitment, and air passenger duty. The chapters on the Landfill Tax and the Aggregates Levy are brought up-to-date, including Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' latest guidance on the interpretation of the Landfill Tax lower rating legislation.
