The following Owner-Managed Businesses guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Philip Rutherford provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
The late payment of income tax and National Insurance contributions (NIC) via PAYE, student loan deductions and income tax due under the construction industry scheme (CIS) will attract both interest and penalties.
