Four Key Questions on Accelerated Payment Notices

What is an Accelerated Payment Notice?

An accelerated payment notice (APN) is a notice from HMRC demanding retribution towards tax that hasn’t been paid due to the use of a tax avoidance scheme. If you’ve used a tax avoidance scheme to try and save money for your business, you may be served an APN asking for payment to be made. This is something that must be dealt with as soon as possible.

Whether the APN is something you were expecting, or something that has come as a total shock, it is vital that you find the support of a trusted insolvency expert as soon as you are made aware. This is to ensure that you take the correct steps going forward with regards to any HMRC accelerated payment issues. Our team are well versed in the financial laws in this area and can advise you in-depth on the specific terms of your accelerated payment notice.

How do I deal with an Accelerated Payment Notice?

When it comes to understanding how to best respond to your accelerated payment notice, it is important to know the key regulations on how the procedure works, which are as follows:

  • You have 90 days in which to pay an APN
    This may sound like a good amount of time, but it actually isn’t a lot of time in practice. Fail to pay your APN in that window of time and you’ll be liable for an additional 5%, with further charges added on if you continue to be unable to pay your HMRC payment arrears. That’s why it’s vital that you seek advice as soon as you receive an accelerated payment notice, especially if you don’t think you can repay it in full; having the representation of a financial expert can go a long way.
  • You can’t simply choose to avoid payment
    HMRC has Direct Recovery of Debts (DRD) access, which means that in the event that you don’t repay the amount listed in your accelerated payment notice, then HMRC can simply take the funds directly from your bank accounts to help cover the costs. This, coupled with the PR nightmare of being one of those businesses viewed as trying to avoid paying their fair share in taxes, mean it’s even more important to seek trusted debt advice to rectify the problem in the correct manner.
