Newth Talks Tax - Self assessment penalties
Self assessment penalties
Paul disclosed that he had received five late self assessment return penalty notices for clients, in his query of 8 March 2007. In each case the return had been delivered by hand to an HMRC office and (amazingly) the revenue receptionist had date-stamped the list. There is therefore proof that the returns were filed on time. Driscoll explained a similar experience, but in his case 60 returns were involved.
