HMRC continues to push for taxpayers to file and pay online.
As part of its strategy to make paper transactions as awkward as possible, and indeed to improve its cashflow, HMRC have changed the rules wrt cheque payments.
As from the 1 April, cheque payments will not be treated as received until the day the cheque clears, rather than when it arrives.
This means that people will be relying on HMRC's efficiency, wrt opening the post and and actually banking the cheque, in order to avoid a penalty.
Tax does have to be taxing.
