Simple Assessment - Lat Payment Penalties

Are HMRC raising late payment penalties for Simple Assessments?

Didn't find your answer?

Does anyone know if HMRC are raising late payment penalties for Simple Assessments?

My understanding was that they have the powers available in law to do so, but have not actually raised any so far.

I see very few Simple Assessments so am not sure if that is still the case.

Do HMRC charge interest and/or penalties on Simple Assessments?
HMRC can charge interest on the underpaid tax and penalties for late payment of tax in respect of Simple Assessments.

It is our understanding that they are currently not doing so.

Only had one in last twelve months so little practical experience.

My client had quite a big one (approx £5k) and I suggested he asked for a payment plan - HMRC said there was no formal way to do this but if he just keeps making regular payments that would be OK. So I don't think they are interested in penalties at this stage...
