HMRC Tax Return Penalty

600,000 Late Tax Filers in the UK Face a £100 Fine from HMRC… and a load of regret

The scores are on the doors, and a whopping 600,000 people missed the 31st January tax return filing deadline.

It’s that time of year again – tax season! Or well, it was until 31st January anyway.  And, as per usual, a whole load of individuals in the UK have failed to file their tax returns on time. This means they’re in for a wild ride of fines, headaches, and a £100 hit to the wallet from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). But hey, at least they’ve avoided doing that pesky tax return. Oh no wait, they haven’t. They still have to get it done or face further penalties. Ouch.

Why did so many people miss the deadline?

Well, some may have gotten lost in a maze of paperwork and numbers, while others may have been too busy doing their best impression of a squirrel – hoarding their time, not their nuts. And let’s not forget those who found themselves in a financial pickle and couldn’t pay their taxes. Those people seem to think simply not filing the return will make the problem go away, when in fact, it can make things worse. Even if you can’t afford your tax bill, you should always file it on time and then use an accountant like Mazuma to help negotiate a Time to Pay agreement with HMRC.
