1 Week to the Self Assessment Tax Return Deadline!

1 week to the self-assessment tax return deadline!

[As at 24 January 2022]: This is the final week in the run-up to the Self Assessment tax return and tax payment deadline. Miss the deadline (31st January) and usually you’d be in for a £100 HMRC fine right away. This year, however, HMRC are giving tax-payers extra time before issuing a ‘late filing’ penalty but interest will still be charged from 1 February, as usual, if tax is not paid by midnight on 31 January (rules apply). Even with the extra period of grace time is still short, so contact Taxfile for help with your tax return as soon as possible please. Book an appointment* with one of our helpful tax advisors and accountancy experts TODAY — we’ll make it easy!

HMRC Waives Late Filing & Payment Penalty for 31st January Deadline

HMRC has taken the decision to not issue a late filing penalty for anyone who does not submit their self-assessment tax return before midnight on 31st January 2022.  It is important to point out that the deadline for filing your 2020-21 tax return remains 31/01/22 but the waiving of the penalty allows anyone who is unable to file their self-assessment tax return by the 31/01/22 deadline avoid a £100 late filing penalty as long as they submit their tax return  sometime before midnight 28th February 2022.

Furthermore, anyone that is unable to pay their self-assessment tax liability before 31st January 2022 will not receive a late payment penalty if they pay their tax in full, or call HMRC to arrange a payment plan before 1st April 2022.  It is important to note that interest will be added on taxes owed from 1st February 2022.
