‘Error or inaccuracy’ penalty
These apply to taxpayers who do not send accurate returns or documents and consequently fail to pay the correct amount of tax at the right time.
‘Failure to notify’ penalty
These apply to taxpayers who fail to:
- register for tax
- notify of a new tax liability
- notify a new activity on which tax is due.
‘VAT and excise wrongdoing’ penalty
These apply to VAT and excise duties to prevent these tax systems being abused.
‘Late-filing behavioural’ penalty
These apply to taxpayers who fail to make their returns for 12 months or more to counter serious and deliberate non-compliance and encourage taxpayers to file on time.
‘Offshore evasion’ penalty

These penalties are described as a Taxes Acts penalty with the exception of VAT which is described as a VAT penalty.
