Harsher rules on late Tax Return penalties
Written by Ray Coman
HMRC have toughened the penalty system for late tax returns. With effect from the tax year ended 5 April 2011, automatic penalties now apply regardless of your tax liability. As such, even if you have no liability, or were due a refund, you are still liable to a minimum £100 if you were supposed to file a Tax Return and have missed the deadline. Penalties increase more sharply where a tax return is over three months late.
