Late payment interest rates

The standard rate has been lowered from 16.5% to 15.0% per annum.

The reduced rate has been decreased from 8.25% to 7.50% per annum.

The increased rate has been brought down from 24.75% to 22.50% per annum.

Reduced rate

The reduced rate is applicable when a taxpayer initiates self-correction prior to receiving a notice of procedures for an amended assessment, and the payment is made within 7 days of filing the corrected return. Conversely, the increased rate is enforced for VAT and customs duties, including situations where a taxpayer understates their tax liability, overstates an overpayment or refund claim, or neglects to file a return and pay tax, and this is discovered during tax control proceedings.
