Get online tax returns in to avoid penalty
Those filing paper tax returns after the 1st of November will be hit with a £100 penalty, even if there is no tax to pay or the tax due is paid on time.
The HMRC says that the longer people delay, the more they will be fined – as there are further late-filing penalties after three, six and twelve months.
Your online tax return must reach HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) by 31 January 2013.
If you haven’t sent an online tax return before, make sure you register for HMRC Online Services in good time.
This will allow HMRC time to send you your Activation Code.
