Penalties guidance: the maximum penalty

The maximum penalty for all businesses consists of the £5,000 fixed starting penalty plus the additional penalty (based on either the culpable turnover/scale charge or a determination of this figure).

This may be replaced or restricted by the penalty cap. See MLR1PP9150
