Default Surcharge: Calculation and notification of the surcharge: Returns that are not received or received late
Returns that are not received
The surcharge amount is based on a central tax assessment when a trader incurs a liability to surcharge by failing to render a return. When a return subsequently replaces an assessment of tax the surcharge is recalculated and notified to the trader.
Returns that are received late
There is no liability to surcharge if
- a nil or repayment return is submitted late, or
- the tax due is paid on time but the return is submitted late.
A default will be recorded and a SLNE issued, but there will be no increase in the rate of surcharge.
