What are the new late payment penalty rules for VAT?

From April 2022 HMRC will be phasing in a new way of imposing penalties for late payments. The new rules mean you won’t be charged a penalty if you pay your VAT in full within 15 days of the due date. If you pay later there’s an initial penalty of 2% of the tax owing. After 30 days from the due date a further penalty applies at 2% of tax owing beyond day 15, plus another 2% of the tax owing at day 30.

What expenses can I claim when I am non-trading?

When you are out of contract and non-trading there are a small number of expenses that you can still claim through your Limited Company. You can still claim for insurance, accountancy fees, use of home, travel to interviews for potential new contracts and training. There may be others that you can claim, you should discuss these with your accountant.

You cannot claim for expenses relating to a new employment outside of your Limited Company.
