Although the official deadline for filing the 2020/21 Self Assessment tax returns and paying the tax due remains 31st January 2022, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) announced on 6th January it would waiver any late filing penalties and late payment penalties for one month. 

This means, that providing you file your self-assessment tax return online by 28th February 2022, you will not receive a late filing penalty.

For anyone who can’t pay their tax by 31st January 2022 will now have until 1st April to pay their tax in full or set up a Time to Pay arrangement with HMRC.

Although there will not be any late payment penalties if the tax is either paid by 1st April or a Time to Pay arrangement is set up by the same date, HMRC has advised that interest will be due from 1st February and this is currently charged at 2.75%.
