Deadline looming for the Self Assessment Tax Return
30 Dec 2011
31 January 2012 marks the deadline for filing the 2011 Self Assessment Tax Return with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
Those taxpayers failing to file their Return online by midnight on Tuesday 31 January will be subject to an automatic penalty of £100. This applies even if there is no tax to pay, or the tax is paid on time.
Tax Returns which are not filed after a further three months will be subject to daily penalties, and additional penalties will apply to Returns which are remain unfiled after six and 12 months, adding up to a potential penalty of £1,600 or more.
Penalties and interest charges also apply for the late payment of tax, and these will continue to be applied until HMRC receives payment.
