The rate of the penalty chargeable on the taxpayer under the harmonised penalty regime is based on the behaviour of the taxpayer and whether the error came to light from an unprompted or prompted disclosure.

The behaviours are:
reasonable care ― where a taxpayer has taken reasonable care but despite this has made a mistake then no penalty will be due
careless ― means a failure to take reasonable care
deliberate ― a deliberate inaccuracy occurs where a person knowingly and intentionally gives HMRC an inaccurate document
