Unauthorised issue penalty: Reconsiderations and Appeals: Withdrawal of a penalty

Please note: the S 67 VATA 1994 penalty has been replaced by the VAT and Excise Wrongdoing penalty introduced by Schedule 41 Finance Act 2008. The VAT and Excise Wrongdoing penalty applies where a person makes an unauthorised issue of an invoice on or after 01/04/2010. If an unauthorised invoice has been issued before 01/04/2010 the S 67 penalty will continue to apply.

Please see the Compliance Handbook CH90000 Penalties for more information about the VAT and Excise Wrongdoing penalty.

In cases where a penalty has been withdrawn subsequent to an appeal being lodged, ask the trader to write formally to the Tribunal Centre withdrawing the appeal.
