Whilst we may be wiping our brow and breathing a sigh of relief that January is done and dusted and the tax return deadline has passed, it is worth keeping in mind what the implications are of missing the deadline – if only to keep ones eye on the ball for January 2016…!
So we thought we would look at the penalties, charges and key dates:
31 January 2015:
If you did not submit your tax return by this date an automatic penalty of £100 will have been levied, even if you have already paid your tax liability or you have no further tax due.
28 February 2015:
If you have not paid your tax liability for 2013/14 in full, a 5% penalty will be levied on the amount of tax outstanding at this date.
30 April 2015:
If you have not submitted your tax return by this date, daily penalties of £10 per day will be charged – maximum 90 days.
31 July 2015:
If you have not submitted your tax return by this date, a further penalty of 5% of your tax liability will become due.
31 July 2015:
If you have not paid your tax liability by this date, a further 5% penalty will be levied on the amount of tax outstanding.
