Proportionate approach to PAYE late filing penalties
HMRC has now issued the first in-year penalties for missed RTI deadlines to employers with less than 50 employees. However, HMRC has said that it will take a proportionate approach and concentrate on the more serious defaults on a risk-assessed basis rather than issue penalties automatically.
This approach is in line with the general approach to penalties, set out in HMRC penalties: a discussion document that came out earlier this year.
HMRC says that it does not want to charge penalties; it wants employers to report on time.
