HMRC Extends Self Assessment Deadline

Late Filing & late payment penalties are to be waived for one month for Self Assessment taxpayers.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is waiving late filing and late payment penalties for Self Assessment taxpayers for one month – giving them extra time, if they need it, to complete their 2020 to 2021 tax return and pay any tax due.

The penalty waivers give taxpayers who need it more time to complete and file their return online and pay the tax due without worrying about receiving a penalty.

The deadline to file and pay remains 31 January 2022. The penalty waivers will mean that:

  • anyone who cannot file their return by the 31 January deadline will not receive a late filing penalty if they file online by 28 February
  • anyone who cannot pay their Self Assessment tax by the 31 January deadline will not receive a late payment penalty if they pay their tax in full, or set up a Time to Pay arrangement, by 1 April

We strongly encourage you to send in your Tax Return information As Soon As Possible to allow us to file it with HMRC by 31 January 2022 because although the late penalty fee will be waived interest will be payable from 1 February, as usual, so it is still better to file & pay on time if possible.

If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
