HMRC increase interest rates for late payments
Following the Bank of England interest rate rise to 0.50%, HMRC interest rates for late payments are to be revised.
On 2 February, The Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee voted to increase the Bank of England base rate to 0.50% from 0.25%. HMRC interest rates are linked to the Bank of England base rate, so as a consequence of the change in the base rate, HMRC interest rates will increase, taking effect as follows:
14 February 2022 for quarterly instalment payments
21 February 2022 for non-quarterly instalments payments.
Repayment interest rates remain unchanged.
