Failure to Notify

[ˈfeɪljə tuː ˈnəʊtɪfaɪ]



Failure to Notify is the act of not telling HMRC about certain circumstances that affect your tax liability. HMRC can issue large fines for this.

More detail:

Failure to Notify is the act of not informing HMRC about a taxable liability or event. This is anything that would affect how much tax you pay.

Without informing HMRC correctly or promptly about any changes, an individual or business might have the wrong Tax Code applied to them and either under or overpay their tax liabilities. Because of this, HMRC can charge large Failure to Notify penalties for anyone who fails to inform them about relevant changes. This can be addition to late fees for certain filing documents like the Self Assessment. Thus, it is important to keep on top of changes and to maintain accurate records.

However, you can appeal the Failure to Notify penalties if you have a Reasonable Excuse.
