HMRC Cancels MGD Fines
HMRC have recently announced that all Machines Games Duty penalties for both late filing and late payment are to be cancelled due to system errors.
A statement issued by HMRC reads: “HMRC wants to provide their customers with good service and for them to have certainty about their MGD affairs, and HMRC are sorry for any worry their mistake has caused. For a short period HMRC will not issue any new automated penalties for late filing of MGD returns and late payment of MGD. HMRC will restart issuing automatic penalties as soon they can be sure that their systems are working properly.”
They have also stated that any penalties paid by customers will also be refunded and those who are currently appealing a penalty will have the case closed without having to pay the fines.
