Section 193 – Assessment of penalties under this Chapter

230.This section provides that where a person becomes liable for a penalty under sections 182, 185 and 186, Revenue Scotland must assess the penalty and then notify the person of this, including making clear the period against which the penalty is being assessed. The penalty must be paid within 30 days of Revenue Scotland issuing the penalty notification to the person and this may be combined with an existing assessment to tax.

231.The assessment of a penalty due to an error in a taxpayer document attributable to either the taxpayer or another person must be made within 12 months of either the end of the appeal period for the decision correcting the inaccuracy or the date on which the inaccuracy is corrected, whichever applies. The assessment of a penalty due to an under-assessment of tax by Revenue Scotland must be made within 12 months of either the end of the appeal period for the assessment of tax which corrected the under-statement or the date on which the understatement is corrected, whichever applies.
