AGGREGATES LEVY: NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT OF A CIVIL PENALTY FOR MISDECLARATION OF END USE (ERROR CORRECTION)
Dear Sir or Madam,
You notified us on -–/ –/ -–-— (enter date) that your previous declaration to your supplier stating that you were to use or had used aggregate for a prescribed industrial purpose or agricultural process under regulations made under section 30 of the Finance Act 2001 was incorrect.
Further to your notification I confirm that you are now liable to a penalty under Section 28 and Schedule 6 of the Finance Act 2001(as amended), and the Commissioners hereby notify you that they have made the following civil penalty assessment.
The penalty is normally calculated as 105% of £ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ which is the amount of the tax credit claimed in error by your supplier in respect of that aggregate in reliance on your previous incorrect declaration. However, due to your co-operation and in all the circumstances, including your voluntary notification, we have, on this occasion, mitigated your liability to 100% of the incorrect declaration i.e. no more than the amount of levy due.
- Your advance payment of £_ _ _ _ _ _ will be allocated to your account and offset against your liability, consequently your liability is now discharged.
**THIS SUM SHOULD BE PAID IMMEDIATELY. NO REMINDER WILL BE SENT.
Send your payment together with the remittance slip to HM Revenue & Customs, CCU (AL), 8th Floor South Central, Alexander House, 21 Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, SS99 1AA.
