No flexibility on 31 Jan deadline- HMRC

Taxman says there will be no compromise on the 31 Jan threshold for taxpayers to submit self-assessment forms online despite falling on a Sunday

The taxman has said the 31 January deadline for online self-assessment will
not be relaxed because it falls on a Sunday.

HMRevenue & Customs is expecting the number of taxpayers filing online to
top the record 5.8m who logged on last year, but has remained firm on the
cut-off point of 11.59 pm on the day.

Those who file after this time will take a £100 penalty plus interest on late
payments.

“There’s no real reason it can’t be done online,” said a spokesman today.
Earlier this week, Grant Thornton
tax
experts urged people not to wait until the
last minute to file, warning
HMRC’s website had been known to crash under heavy traffic.
