Immediate £100 penalty

Failure to comply with the deadlines results in an immediate £100 penalty, regardless of if there is any tax due or not, and if the return is still not filed after 3 months then £10 per day penalties are applied. These charges increase again if the return is still outstanding after 6 and 12 months. Best not to miss the filing deadlines if you want to avoid losing £100 or potentially much more.
