Monday 25 January 2021: Responding to HMRC’s announcement that they will waive late self assessment filing penalties, Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive, said:

“We are pleased that HMRC has acted on our calls for an automatic one-month waiver of penalties for late filing. This is good news for hard-pressed businesses and their agents, many of whom are struggling to meet the filing deadline because of the impact of COVID-19. This decision will make a real difference and we are grateful to HMRC for their flexibility.”
