August key dates and deadlines

What are the August key dates and deadlines?

The August key dates and deadlines for August started off on 1 August for corporation tax payments and 2 August for filing of P46(Car).  We get a short reprieve then until 7 August for the filing and payment of VAT, 18 August for payment of PAYE and NIC by cheque and 22 August for payment of PAYE and NIC electronically

This blog post explains some important August key dates and tax deadlines which must still be met in August 2023.

5 August 2023
PAYE tax month 4 ends on 5 August 2023.

7 August 2023
VAT-registered businesses must file their VAT return for the quarter to 30 June 2023 online by 7 August 2023 and pay any associated VAT by the same date.

18 August 2023
Employers who pay their PAYE and NIC by cheque must ensure that their payment for month 4 (to 5 August 2023) reaches the Accounts Office by 18 August 2023 as the normal filing date of 19th of the month falls on a Saturday. Cheques received by HMRC on Saturday 19 August will be treated as received on Monday 21 August, with the result that the payment will be regarded as late. While HMRC do operate a three day period of grace for payments received within three days or the due date, it is prudent to post the cheque in sufficient time for it to reach HMRC by 18 August.

22 August 2023
Employers who pay their PAYE and NIC electronically enjoy a later deadline than those who pay by cheque. The deadline for electronic payments is the 22nd of the month. If you pay your PAYE and NIC electronically, you will need to ensure that your payment of PAYE and NIC for month 4 clears HMRC’s account by 22 August 2023.

31 August 2023
If your company prepared its accounts to 30 November 2022, you would need to ensure that your accounts are filed at Companies House by 31 August 2023.
