Removal of Paper Form 2 and online reporting in 2018/2019

19 Feb 2018

In our 2017 - 2020 Corporate Plan, in order to reduce the administrative burden on Environmental Bodies (EBs) we informed EBs of our intention to move to 100 per cent e-delivery.

ENTRUST online (EOL) allows all EB reporting to be completed online, to reduce the burden on EBs and ensure that compliance can be readily achieved. For example, EOL includes a facility to extend projects where they are running beyond their original expected end date. More than 90 per cent of all reporting currently takes place online. In line with the general trend to move to the e-delivery of services, we plan to move to a single e-system within three years and remove the need to operate a hard copy system. We will continue to provide support to any individuals and EBs who find it difficult to work online, but we believe this is the most efficient and cost effective way to support reporting across the LCF.

In the 2017 - 2020 Corporate Plan we published the schedule for a phased removal of paper forms designed to gradually move EBs to this way of working whilst maintaining compliance with the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996. This commenced in April 2017 with the removal of the Paper Form 3 (contribution received directly from a landfill operator) and the Paper Form 7 (transfer of monies between EBs).

Following notification in the 2017 - 2020 Corporate Plan and in our October 2017 eNewsletter we now reminding EBs of our intention to remove the Paper Form 2 for the 2018/2019 year. The Paper Form 2 (Applying to register a project) will be removed from 1 April 2018. Currently 98 per cent of Project Registrations are already submitted online through EOL.

If your EB would like to register a project after April 2018 you will need to do so using EOL. If you have already registered for EOL and have forgotten your password please go to EOL, enter your email address and click on the forgotten password link and follow the instructions.
