Q. What are my obligations as an enrolled EB?
EBs must ensure that all LCF funds received are spent compliantly; sufficient records of all LCF income and expenditure are maintained and statutory reporting requirements are met.
You can take ENTRUST's 30 minute online training module to understand the obligations of an enrolled EB. The module can be accessed through this EB Enrolment Module link.
Q. What documents do I need to enrol?
You will need to submit a copy of your organisation's governing document such as the constitution or, Memorandum and Articles of Association as part of your application. We use these to check that your organisation is eligible to be enrolled. Please make sure that the answers you give in your application reflect what is said in your governing document.
Q. When should I start the enrolment process?
We recommend that you do not start the application to enrol with us until you have been given a conditional offer of funding by a fund provider. Once an application is submitted to us we will respond within five working days either to approve the enrolment or to request further information. Where further information is requested (please bear in mind that this may involve changes to governing documents) the time taken to enrol will depend on the speed with which the applicant can provide the information and answer all questions.
Q. How can I find out what I need to do to enrol as an Environmental Body (EB)?
Contact our registrations team prior to submitting an enrolment application and/or read our guidance manual. Part 2 of the manual covers the requirements for organisations wishing to enrol.
Q. What if I am not happy with the decision of the Review Panel?
As the enrolment/project has by this stage been reviewed twice, initially by the Registrations Officer and then the Review Panel, we would consider this matter closed. We are obviously happy to run through amendments to the initial application that would bring the proposal into line with the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations).

Q. How will I know the decision of the Review Panel?
You will be advised of the Review Panel’s findings within five working days of the meeting.
Q. What should I do if my enrolment/project has been initially refused?
If you have an enrolment or project that has been refused, you are welcome to make representations to the Review Panel either in the form of correspondence sent to us before the meeting or in person on the day. Details of how this can be done should be discussed with us in advance of the meeting.
Q. How do I ensure my refused enrolment/project will be reviewed by the Review Panel?
All enrolments and projects that are refused will be reviewed by the Panel as a matter of course. The details of when this Panel is due to sit will be detailed on your initial refusal letter.
Q. How often does the Review Panel meet?
The Review Panel meets quarterly unless there are no enrolment or project applications to review.
Q. What is the purpose of the Review Panel?
The Review Panel has been established to provide an independent review of every single enrolment and project application that has been refused by the Registrations Officer.
Q. How long does it take to enrol as an Environmental Body (EB) and register my projects?
We will enrol organisations and approve their projects within five working days of a complete application being made providing that all the correct information is supplied to us at the point of application and no changes are required to ensure the eligibility of the organisation or project. Where further information and/or changes are required, the time taken will depend on the speed with which that applicant responds with information and implements changes.
