Penalties for Late Payment of PAYE

Newsletter issue - February 2012.

PAYE and other payroll deductions need to clear Taxman's bank account by 19th of the month, if paid by cheque. Electronic payments can arrive by 22nd of the month, or the last banking day before that date.

If you use the faster payments service (FPS) to make your PAYE payment, the amount transferred will clear the Taxman's bank account the same or next day. However, there are limits on the amounts that can be transferred per day and per transaction using FPS, which vary from bank to bank. So check what limit your bank applies.

Late payments of PAYE will result in an automatic penalty of up to 4% of the PAYE that was paid late. You are permitted to make one late payment of PAYE during the tax year, but two or more late payments will mean that a penalty will be charged after the end of the year.

In addition, if you have still not paid after six months you may have to pay a further penalty of 5 per cent. A further penalty of 5 per cent may be charged if you have not paid after 12 months. These apply where only one payment in the tax year is late.

The Taxman has already issued many penalties for late payment of PAYE in 2010/11, and some of these penalties have been calculated incorrectly. If you receive a penalty notice, please ask us to check it as soon as it arrives. Any appeal must be submitted within 30 days.
