Insurance Premium Tax

Accounting for Insurance Premium Tax: transitional accounting arrangements: penalties on errors relating to the rate changes

The tax has been in operation for a number of years and we expect insurers to be familiar with its operation and to cope with rate changes. Therefore, penalties and interest may be imposed as a result of errors made by insurers relating to changes in the rate of tax or to any extension of the higher rate.
