Making Tax Digital VAT Penalties and Charges

 The Government announced pre-pandemic that it intended to change the way interest and penalties are applied for VAT purposes.

After a number of delays, the new rules are to be implemented for VAT periods starting on or after 1 January 2023. The default surcharge will be replaced by new penalties if a VAT return is submitted late or VAT is paid late. There will also be changes to how VAT interest is calculated.

Self Assessment Deadline



Now that the clocks have changed and the nights are drawing in don't forget that the self-assessment tax return deadline is 31 January 2024.

HMRC impose automatic financial penalties if your tax return is filed late, if only by one day, and, these fines continue to increase until your return has been successfully received.

We have a specialised tax team who can offer you a helping hand with your tax return and provide advice where required.

If you would like us to assist with your tax return or any other matter then please contact the practice. We offer a free, with no obligation, meeting to assess your requirements and would be delighted to welcome you to either of our offices.
