VAT Submission

New VAT Penalties

Starting in 2023, submitting a VAT return after the deadline will result in penalty points. These points can add up, resulting in fines of up to £200 for each subsequent late submission. It’s important to understand how the points system works and how to avoid these penalties. For example, businesses making quarterly returns have a higher threshold for penalty points compared to those making annual or monthly returns. It’s also important to note that changes to your business, such as switching to a different accounting period, can affect your penalty points.
