ELLIS DECORATORS

Providing a full decorating service

ANNIE’S NAGGING HIGHLIGHTS What happens next? Right now, you’re possibly concerned to have received a late filing penalty notice from HMRC in respect of your 2018 tax return You know that these things just become a bigger problem if left, but if you ignore it nothing much seems to happen, so why bother? Once the £100 penalty notice has been issued, interest and other penalties start adding up but you might not realise this until a horribly large penalty crashes through the letter box; and suddenly it has all become extremely urgent with big penalties; HMRC accept very few “excuses”, the penalties are payable, even if you have no tax to pay

You need to talk to someone who can help you get matters back in order – and we’re here for you

NEXT MONTH

IT’S NOT TOO EARLY TO SUBMIT YOUR 2019 TAX RETURN – WHY WAIT?
