This guidance note provides an overview of the penalties that can be imposed on a business that either fails to submit an EC Sales List (ESL) or submits a materially inaccurate ESL.

Note: EC Sales Lists were only required whilst the UK was a member of the EU and during the transaction period ending on 31 December 2020. UK businesses are not required to file EC Sales lists for supplies made from 1 January 2021.
