With this being the last day before self assessment 2011-2012 tax return submission and payments are due, HMRC have warned small businesses of the tough approach to late payments.
The Daily Telegraph reported this week that the department presented more petitions to wind up late-paying firms (5,302) in the year to March 2012 than it did in the 12 months before this (3,367). While HMRC says it does not aim to wind up any firm and does not take such action lightly, it will look to recoup any tax owed to the Exchequer.
Many small businesses take advantage of theHMRC’s Time to Pay payment plans, but you must not already be late with payment – foresight is essential. Small businesses should do more to avoid having a last minute panic when they procrastinate and leave doing things close to the deadline. Being prepared and having up to date records not only assists cash flow but can also help you grow your business.
