The 3% rate is applied to late payments for income tax, National Insurance contributions, capital gains tax, stamp duty land tax, stamp duty and stamp duty reserve tax.

The corporation tax pay and filing penalty will also rise to 3% for late payments while the repayment rate remains at 0.5%.

In line with the December 2021 announcement, interest paid on overpaid quarterly instalment payments and on early payments of corporation tax not due by instalments remains at 0.5%, unchanged since March 2009.
