Undeclared Overseas Investments

A deadline of 30 September 2018 exists to notify, in full, to HMRC and attract a charge to penalties for an ‘unprompted’ disclosure. These penalties are likely to be between 10% and 30% of the tax due.

Failure to make a full declaration to HMRC by 30 September will lead to much higher penalty charges for ‘failure to correct’, which start at 200% of the tax underpaid and can go up to a maximum of 300% for deliberate evasion.

In addition, there is the possibility of a new ‘asset-based’ penalty where tax involved exceeds £25,000 of up to 10%.

Individuals may be ‘named and shamed’ and publicised by HMRC.
