HMRC has revised interest rates with late payment bills charged 6.75% from 13 April, the highest level since January 2008.
HMRC interest rates are set in legislation and are linked to the Bank of England base rate. There are 2 rates:
The late payment interest rate encourages prompt payment. It ensures fairness for those who pay their tax on time.
The repayment interest rate compensates taxpayers fairly, when they overpay or pay early, for loss of use of their money.
