Use the postal form


Waste producers can apply to HMRC to discount the water content of waste for Landfill Tax. If you’re a landfill site operator you need to agree to this using form LT4WD, before the waste producer sends their application to HMRC.

You can either:

  • use the online service
  • fill in the form on-screen, print and post it to HMRC

To use the online service you will need a Government Gateway user ID and password. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you first use the service.

Email HMRC to ask for this form in Welsh (Cymraeg).

Before you start

If you’re using an older browser, for example, Internet Explorer 8, you’ll need to update it or use a different browser. Find out more about browsers.

You’ll need to fill in the postal form fully before you can print it. You cannot save a partly completed form so we suggest you gather all your information together before you begin to fill it in.

You can read Excise Notice LFT1 for a general guide to Landfill Tax.

Use form LT1WD to apply to discount the water content of waste for Landfill Tax.
