Consultation on tax penalties

Close date: 9 September 2011

The Government consults on a new penalty framework for civil penalties administered by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The penalties in scope are those that the Review of Powers, Deterrents and Safeguards has not yet considered, including most penalties relating to the taxes and duties administered by HMRC and a few non-tax penalties.
