Late filing penalties

HMRC will continue with their approach to issuing late filing penalties through 2016/17, according to a local accountancy firm in Stockport,  IN Accountancy.

HMRC have confirmed, in their updated guidance, employers will not incur penalties for delays of up to three days in filing PAYE information during the 2016/17 tax year.

Risk-assessed basis

Late filing penalties will continue to be reviewed on a risk-assessed basis rather than be issued automatically.

Employers are required to file a Full Payment Submission (FPS) on or before each payment of wages is made to employees. Limited exceptions apply to this deadline which are set out at https://www.gov.uk/running-payroll/fps-after-payday’.

Persistent offenders

HMRC will not charge a late filing penalty for delays of up to three days after the statutory filing date, however employers who persistently file late, will be monitored and may be contacted or considered for a penalty.
