Late filing of self-assessment tax returns
25 Apr, 2018
Taxpayers that have not yet filed their 2016-17 self-assessment returns, will have already been charged an automatic £100 penalty for late submission. The penalty applied from 1 February 2018 even if no tax was due or the tax due was paid on time.
HMRC has estimated that almost 750,000 taxpayers missed the 31 January 2018 deadline for submitting their tax returns. Taxpayers who were meant to file online by 31 January 2018, and have still not filed their 2016-17 return, are reminded that they will
face far greater penalties.
