Daily Penalties for 2018/19 self-assessment returns suspended

HMRC has issued correspondence that sets out its policy decision not to charge individuals and businesses daily penalties for late filing of 2018-19 tax returns. 

HMRC has issued correspondence that sets out its policy decision not to charge individuals and businesses daily penalties for late filing of 2018-19 tax returns. This is in recognition of the exceptionally difficult circumstances many taxpayers are in as a result of the coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic.

The mandatory six- and 12-month penalties will continue to apply for 2018-19 returns as normal. HMRC will accept coronavirus as a reasonable excuse for missing return deadlines.
