Introduction to Tax Advantaged Share Schemes: Setting up a scheme: Amended returns
A penalty of up to £5,000 may arise if a return contains a material inaccuracy which is careless or deliberate and is not corrected by an amended return.
A company must submit an amended return it if becomes aware:
- that information was omitted from the return submitted,
- that the submitted return includes something that should not have been included, or
- of any other error or inaccuracy in the return.
Once the company has identified the inaccuracy, it must submit the amended return “without delay”.
