HMRC Raises Interest Rates On Late Tax Payments
HMRC has confirmed it will raise interest rates on late tax bills by 0.25 percentage points after the Bank of England increased the base rate of interest to 1%.
The announcement means the late payment interest rate and corporation tax pay and file rate will increase to 3.5% from 24 May 2022 (16 May 2022 for quarterly instalment payments) after the Government increased it to 3.25% on 5 April – the highest rate since the height of the financial crisis in January 2009.
Late payment interest is payable on late tax bills including income tax, National Insurance contributions, capital gains tax, and stamp duty land tax.
