First Soft Drinks Industry Levy return due in July

If you are a packager of drinks that are liable for the Soft Drinks Industry Levy (SDIL) you are required to send a return to HMRC every quarter, and pay any levy due.


There will be fixed reporting periods ending June, September, December and March. You must submit returns and pay any levy due within 30 days of the end of each reporting period. Where you are registered for this levy however and you have nothing to report, you are still required to file a NIL return, unless you are registered as a small producer.


To submit a return, you will need to register for the levy. Use the link below if you are a producer, importer or packager to see if you are liable to report.


If you need to report and you fail to register this is a criminal offence and you may be prosecuted and/or charged if you don’t submit and pay any levies on time. The charge from HMRC can be an estimate of what you owe if it is not filed on time.


There will be an online service available from July 2018 that you must use to submit your returns.
