This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)This section applies where—
(a)a person becomes liable to a penalty under section 146,
(b)the failure or obstruction continues after the day on which a penalty notice is issued under section 153(1)(b) in respect of the penalty,
(c)WRA has reason to believe that, as a result of the failure or obstruction, the amount of devolved tax that the person has paid, or is likely to pay, is significantly less than it would otherwise have been,
(d)before the end of the period of 12 months beginning with the relevant date, WRA makes an application to the Upper Tribunal for an additional penalty to be imposed on the person (see subsection (6)) and gives notice of the application to the person, and
(e)the Upper Tribunal decides that it is appropriate for an additional penalty to be imposed.
(2)The person is liable to a penalty of an amount determined by the Upper Tribunal.
(3)In determining the amount, the Upper Tribunal must have regard to the amount of devolved tax which has not been, or is not likely to be, paid by the person.
(4)Any penalty under this section is in addition to the penalty or penalties under section 146 or 147.
(5)In subsection (1)(d), the “relevant date” means—
(a)in a case involving an information notice against which a person may appeal, the latest of—
(i)the day on which the person became liable to the penalty under section 146,
(ii)if no appeal against the information notice is made, the end of the period in which such an appeal could have been made, and
(iii)if such an appeal is made, the day on which the appeal is finally determined or withdrawn, and
(b)in any other case, the day on which the person became liable to the penalty under section 146.
(6)WRA may not make an application of the kind mentioned in subsection (1)(d) if a decision relating to a penalty under section 146, 147 or 150 in respect of the failure or obstruction is the subject of—
(a)a review for which notice of the conclusions has not yet been issued, or
(b)an appeal which has not yet been finally determined or withdrawn.
