We expect retailers to donate the proceeds of the charge (after deducting VAT and reasonable costs) to good causes such as charities or community groups. The costs of the bags themselves cannot be deducted from the revenue.</p><p> </p><p>The Single Use Carrier Bags Charges (England) Order 2015 is due for review before 5 October 2020, which will require an assessment of cost and benefits.
