249 Recovery of penalties.E+W+S+N.I.

(1)All proceedings for the recovery of penalties under this Part of this Act shall be commenced by the Board, or in Scotland, by the Board or the Lord Advocate.

(2)Any such proceedings may be commenced either before the [F1First-tier Tribunal] or in the High Court or the Court of Session and shall, if brought in the High Court, be deemed to be civil proceedings by the Crown within the meaning of Part II of the M1Crown Proceedings Act 1947 or, as the case may be, that Part as for the time being in force in Northern Ireland.

[F2(3)Where any proceedings are brought before the First-tier Tribunal, in addition to any right of appeal on a point of law under section 11(2) of the TCEA 2007, the person liable to the penalty may appeal to the Upper Tribunal against the amount of a penalty which has been determined under this Part, but not against any decision which falls under section 11(5)(d) and (e) of the TCEA 2007 and was made in connection with the determination of the amount of the penalty.

(3A)Section 11(3) and (4) of the TCEA 2007 applies to the right of appeal under subsection (3) as it applies to the right of appeal under section 11(2) of the TCEA 2007.

(3B)On an appeal under this section the Upper Tribunal has the same powers as are conferred on the First-tier Tribunal by virtue of this section.]

[F3(4)The person liable to the penalty shall be a party to the proceedings.]

(5)References in this section to the Court of Session are references to that Court as the Court of Exchequer in Scotland.
