Total count

Commercial packaging may also be included in the total count of packaging tonnes if the company wishes to declare them voluntarily, but in no case should the amount exceed 12 tonnes. Otherwise, an ordinary declaration with the corresponding detail would have to be submitted.

Regularisation

The simplified declaration is exempt from regularisation, except for those companies that, during the calendar year to which the declaration is referred, exceed 12 tonnes of packaging placed in the market.

Invoicing

The annual contribution will be invoiced once in March every year, maturing on 30 June, except in the case of new adhesion, in whose case it will be invoiced when entering it and the maturity will be one month after the invoice date.

New adhesion companies

Companies in the process of adhering that have not submitted declarations will have to submit a packaging declaration for each of the last four years and the current year, unless they can prove they have had no business activity.
