The filing and payment deadline for Income Tax Self Assessment is 31st January 2022. HMRC have announced that this deadline will be extended, to reduce pressure caused by Omicron related staff shortages.
HMRC will not charge:
- late filing penalties for those who file online by 28 February 2022
- late payment penalties for those who pay the tax due in full or set up a payment plan by 1 April 2022.
The deadline is not moving, only the charging period; other self-assessment obligations are unchanged. Interest will be charged as usual from 1 February on outstanding amounts.
