Tax Return Deadline Extends From 31 Jan 2022 To 28 Feb 2022

HM Revenue and Customs are giving one extra month to file Self Assessment and make payment for 2020 to 2021 tax return and tax payment.

The deadline to file and pay remains 31 January 2022. The penalty waivers will mean that:

  • anyone who cannot file their return by the 31 January deadline will not receive a late filing penalty if they file online by 28 February
  • anyone who cannot pay their Self Assessment tax by the 31 January deadline will not receive a late payment penalty if they pay their tax in full, or set up a Time to Pay arrangement, by 1 April

Interest will be payable from 1 February, as usual, so it is still better to pay on time if possible.

Time to Pay

The existing Time to Pay service allows any individual or business who needs it the option to spread their tax payments over time. Self Assessment taxpayers with up to £30,000 of tax debt can do this online once they have filed their return.

If you need to arrange a payment plan, please see below the contact details.
