Self-Evaluation taxpayers who had tax underpayments when submitting their 2020/21 UK tax returns must make their second cost on account for the 2021/2022 tax yr by thirty first of July or face curiosity expenses, say main tax and advisory agency, Blick Rothenberg.

In the event that they don’t make the cost by this date, it will probably create further liabilities. Curiosity expenses for the 2021/22 UK tax yr could also be backdated to the July POA deadline and may increase the person’s ‘profile’ with HMRC and therefore enhance the potential of them being subjected to a tax audit.”

“Funds on account aren’t required by all taxpayers throughout the self-assessment tax return system – e.g., these with earnings tax liabilities of beneath £1,000 for the 2020/21 UK tax yr or who have been liable to CGT relatively than earnings tax on their final return – gained’t must make any cost on account at this stage.”
Robert added: “Taxpayers experiencing monetary issues now shouldn’t simply ignore their POAs – relatively, they need to pro-actively contact HMRC, in order that they’ll speak by means of their place. They might, for instance, imply that they’ll agree a ‘cost plan’ with HMRC, which may allow them to make the related tax funds over an extended interval.”
