HMRC outlines changes to late payment penalty regime
Posted on: 6th September 2021
HMRC has published a policy paper outlining the forthcoming changes to the penalties for late payment and interest harmonisation for taxpayers. The government intends to reform sanctions for late submission and late payments to make them 'fairer and more consistent across taxes'. Initially the changes will apply to VAT and Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA).   The changes will see interest charges and repayment interest harmonised to bring VAT in line with other tax regimes, including ITSA. Under the new regime, there are two late payment penalties that may apply: a first penalty and then an additional or second penalty, with an annualised penalty rate. All taxpayers, regardless of the tax regime, have a legal obligation to pay their tax by the due date for that tax. The taxpayer will not incur a penalty if the outstanding tax is paid within the first 15 days after the due date. If tax remains unpaid after day 15, the taxpayer incurs the first penalty. This penalty is set at 2% of the tax outstanding after day 15. If any of the tax is still unpaid after day 30 the penalty will be calculated at 2% of the tax outstanding after day 15 plus 2% of the tax outstanding after day 30. If tax remains unpaid on day 31 the taxpayer will begin to incur an additional penalty on the tax remaining outstanding. This will accrue at 4% per annum. HMRC will offer taxpayers the option of requesting a Time To Pay arrangement which will enable a taxpayer to stop a penalty from accruing by approaching HMRC and agreeing a schedule for paying their outstanding tax. For VAT taxpayers, the reforms take effect from VAT periods starting on or after 1 April 2022. The changes will take effect for taxpayers in ITSA from accounting periods beginning on or after 6 April 2023 for those with business or property income over £10,000 per year (that is, taxpayers who are required to submit digital quarterly updates through Making Tax Digital for ITSA). For all other ITSA taxpayers, the reforms will take effect from accounting periods beginning on or after 6 April 2024. Internet link: GOV.UK

Claims for the latest Self Employed Income Support Scheme Grants
Posted on: 20th April 2021
HMRC are now contacting individuals who may be eligible for the latest round of Self Employed Income Support Scheme (“SEISSS”) grants. They are providing individuals with a personal claim date. You can apply anytime from then until 1‌‌ ‌June 2021. Eligibility and calculation of the grant For full details of eligibility criteria, and how the grant is calculated, please visit GOV‌‌‌.UK and search 'Self-Employment Income Support Scheme' or SEISS. How to claim Make sure to claim on or after your personal claim date. Your grant should be claimed online. Search for 'Self-Employment Income Support Scheme' on GOV‌‌‌.UK. To confirm your eligibility and make your claim, you’ll need your: National Insurance number: If you don’t know this: go to the HMRC app, your online Personal Tax Account (PTA) or ask your tax agent (if you have one). Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number: You can find this on your Self Assessment papers, in your PTA or by asking your tax agent. Government Gateway user ID and password: To avoid delays, please check that you can log in to the Government Gateway before your personal claim date. If you don’t have an account, or have forgotten your details, follow the instructions on GOV‌‌‌.UK by searching 'HMRC services: sign in or register'. Please also check your contact details are correct in your Government Gateway account. Your bank account number and sort code: For a building society account, please include the roll number, if you have one. HMRC will also ask for the address that your bank or building society account is registered to. Please note this is your address – most likely your home or business premises – not the address of your bank or building society. If you haven’t claimed before If this is your first time claiming a SEISS grant, you may be asked additional questions to prove your identity. Questions could relate to any of the following: your UK passport information held on your credit file (such as loans, credit cards or mortgages) your Self Assessment tax return (within the last three years) your tax credit claim your P60 one of your three most recent payslips. Please have this information ready when making your claim. Your claim may be delayed if you cannot answer the identity verification questions. After you have submitted your claim Once you have completed your claim, HMRC will undertake checks to verify it. HMRC will pay the money directly into your bank account within six working days of receiving your claim. You must keep appropriate records as evidence of the impact on your business. Support with your claim As with previous SEISS claims, it is important that you make the claim yourself. Agents will not be able to make a claim on behalf of client; this will trigger a fraud alert and will result in significant delays to payment.   A word about scams We are aware of an increase in scam emails, calls and texts. If someone gets in touch claiming to be from HMRC, saying that financial help can be claimed or that a tax refund is owed, and asks you to click on a link or to give information such as your name, credit card or bank details, please do not respond. You can forward suspicious emails claiming to be from HMRC to phishing@hmrc.gov.uk and texts to 60599. Search 'Check a list of genuine HMRC contacts' on GOV‌‌‌.UK.
