CIL surcharges and penalties

Penalties and surcharges schedule

Surcharges will be applied in accordance with the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended) in the event of disqualifying events or non-submission of information or forms within the required timescales.

Regulations 87 and 88 provide details of interest which can be also charged upon late payments at an annual rate of 2.5 percentage points above the Bank of England base.

Failure to comply with the CIL requirements may trigger us to take enforcement action. This can include the use of warning notices (warn development will need to stop), stop notices (to force development to stop) or even court action.
