Reply To: Tax credit fines


Just checked the Tax Credits Act, the relevant penalty seems to be covered by s.32(1)(b) & (2). As far as I can see, it’s a maximum of £300 for starters, plus a maximum of £60 a day if you still don’t reply after they slap on the first penalty.

For employers, there is a maximum of £3000 for failing to pay WTC properly.
