• From 5 October 2015 large retailers in England must charge a minimum of 5p for single use carrier bags, bringing them into line with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 
  • A large retailer is one with more than 250 employees.

Small and medium sized retailers with fewer than 250 employees do not have to apply the charge but they can do so voluntarily.
