HMRC have now published their intentions to fine employers for late Real Time Information (RTI) submissions.
If a submission appears to not be filed by the due date for either an FPS (Full Payment Summary) or an EPS (Employer Payment Summary) a late filing penalty will be imposed.
The amount depend on the number of employees your business employs.
- Employers with 1 to 9 employees the penalty will be £100 per month
- Employers with 10 to 49 employees the penalty will be £200 per month
- Employers with 50 to 249 employees the penalty will be £300 per month
- Employers with 250 or more the penalty will be £400 per month
HMRC will use the last available information to determine the number of employees to calculate the size of the penalty for each period where a return is late. HMRC reserve the right to charge interest on top of the filing penalty after 3 months of none compliance.
