Online reporting and removal of paper Form 3 and 7 in 2017/2018

8 Feb 2017

In order to reduce the administrative burden on Environmental Bodies (EBs) we plan to move to 100 per cent e-delivery and online reporting of Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) activity, over a phased three year period, starting from 1 April 2017.

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.

We have adopted a phased approach over the next three years, designed to gradually move EBs to this way of working whilst maintaining compliance with the Regulations. We are notifying EBs of our intention to remove two paper forms for the 2017/2018 year. The Paper Form 3 (contribution received directly from a landfill operator) and the Paper Form 7 (transfer of monies between EBs) will be removed from 1 April 2017. Currently 95 per cent of Form 3s and Form 7s are already submitted online through EOL. 

If your EB has a contribution from a Landfill Operator or makes a transfer to another EB, after April 2017 you will need to complete the respective form 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. A reminder of your password will then be sent to you by email.
