Self assessment late filing penalties

Didn't find your answer?

I submitted a late 2018/19 return just over a week ago on 28/05/2020 - client has only had his £100 penalty applied thus far so waiting on the dailies.

Does anyone have recent experience of how long HMRC are taking to apply daily penalties to client self assessment accounts?

In my experience they only charge daily penalties if the tax return has not been submitted. I dont think they catch up later.

Yes they do. Filing a return after 30 April but before the 90 days are up will cause the SA computer to automatically issue a daily penalty. Believe me I've dealt as a Tribunal judge with hundreds of appeals against late filing penalties and many of them had daily penalties in amounts other than £900 and which were issued on the date the return was filed.

Thanks. I have no doubt the penalties are coming, it's just a question of how long it is likely to take in the current environment!
