The government has announced that they will support businesses during COVID-19 by deferring VAT and Income Tax payments.
VAT will be deferred for 3 months starting from 20 March 2020 until 30 June 2020 and the self-employed will have their Self Assessment advance payment due in July 2020 deferred to January 2021.
All UK businesses and self-employed individuals are eligible to take advantage of the tax deferrals which are automatic and do not require applications.
During the deferral period HMRC will not charge any penalties or interest for late payment.
