Supporting Guidance: employer compliance: guidance by subject: penalties: failure to submit P11D returns

You do not use the PDAC when calculating these penalties.

These penalties are provided by Section 98(1)(b) TMA 1970.

Section 98(1)(i) provides a maximum initial penalty of £300 per form but these penalties can only be imposed by the First Tier Tribunal to whom an application needs to be made. See COG914185 and EM4902 onwards.

After an initial penalty has been imposed by the Tribunal, the Business Unit Head can determine continuing penalties of a maximum of £60 per day thereafter, under Section 98(1)(ii) - COG914190.

But Section 98(4) provides that no continuing penalty can be imposed after the failure has been remedied.
