Self assessment penalty notices delayed

If you thought the timing of the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT was a poor one given Brexit, then what about this “ HMRC says that because of Brexit, it will be delaying the issue of self assessment penalty notices, until such time as its call centres have time to cope with the calls from taxpayers”

HMRC has stated that the latest date the notices will go out is the end of April instead of February, which may just mean more taxpayers will be liable to the daily penalty for non-submission for being over three months late!
