Appeal HMRC Fine

You can appeal to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) against a penalty, for example for:

  • an inaccurate return
  • sending in your tax return late
  • paying tax late
  • failing to keep adequate records

HMRC officer who was not previously involved with your penalty decision will carry out a review if you appeal.

If you want to appeal a penalty about ‘indirect tax’ (for example VAT, excise duty, customs duty) you can either:

  • request a review from HMRC
  • appeal straight to the tax tribunal

Your penalty may be cancelled or amended if you have a reasonable excuse.
