They have not, however, extended the payment deadline so any tax due was still payable by 31 January 2022. As a concession, the usual late filing penalties will not be charged until 1 April 2022 but interest at a rate of 2.75% builds up daily on any unpaid amount from 1 February 2022.
What are the penalties for this year?
- £100 if your tax return has not been filed by 1 March 2022
- 5% of the unpaid tax if you have not paid by 1 April 2022 or do not have a payment plan in place
- Further penalties if the return and tax outstanding for more than 6 months
