Londoners leave tax filing late
by Susie Hughes at 08:40 20/01/14 (News on Business)
Londoners are more likely to miss the tax return deadline than taxpayers in any other part of the UK, according to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
Around one in ten of the 560,000 people in Inner London who had to send in a tax return last year didn’t do so by the relevant deadline – October 31 for paper returns and January 31 for online submissions.

The one million taxpayers in Outer London were more punctual, with one in 11 failing to meet the deadline, but they were still the second worst offenders. The tardiest taxpayers outside of London were in the North West of England.

Taxpayers in the rest of the English regions fared better. The most punctual were in the South West, with only six per cent of their one million tax returns arriving late. The other English regions, as well as Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, all registered seven per cent of late tax returns, which was the UK national average.

HMRC Director General of Personal Tax, Ruth Owen, said: “Whether you’re from London, Livingston, Lisburn or Llandudno, the consequences of missing the tax return deadline are the same – an automatic £100 late-filing penalty.

“The longer you delay, the more you have to pay. So if you still have to send us your tax return, take action now.”

Anyone with an outstanding 2012-13 tax return must send it online, and pay any tax they owe, by January 31, 2014.

More information and to file online see: HMRC’s website. If you are filing online for the first time, HMRC will need to send a verification code through the post so remember to allow a few days for this to arrive before the January 31 deadline.
