To improve employer compliance, legislative changes have been made that introduce three new penalties for employers:.
- Any late monthly remittance will be subject to a penalty. Any payment or part payment of ITIP made later than the 19th day of each month will be liable to a 5% penalty. Any amount which remains outstanding after a further 6 months will then be liable to a 5% additional penalty.
- An employer’s annual return which is submitted late will be subject to a civil penalty. Any return submitted later than 30 days from the end of the tax year or 30 days from the date of cessation as an employer will be liable to a £250 penalty, together with a penalty of £50 per day that the return continues to remain outstanding. A criminal offence occurs if the return remains outstanding for more than six months.
- The third penalty will apply to any failure to comply with the Income Tax (Instalment Payments) Act 1974 or the Income Tax (Modified ITIP) Regulations 1987 where another penalty does not apply. Any instance of non-compliance with the above legislation will be liable to a £250 penalty. This includes the failure to notify the Division that an employer has commenced or ceased to act as an employer.
