Coronavirus update - CIL regulations and payment arrangements

View details of how normal regulations may be affected

Deferred payments and late payment interest

The Government has confirmed they intend to help small and medium sized developers (those with an annual turnover of less than £45 million) by introducing temporary amendments to the CIL Regulations 2010, such as deferring payments and disapplying late payment interest, where appropriate. 

The Amendment to the Regulations is due to be affirmed by Parliament this autumn. However, we can confirm that until amendments to the regulations take effect, we will take a flexible approach to requests for deferred payments, and may not pursue missed payments in the short term.

It is unknown whether the Regulation amendments will apply retrospectively. Therefore, we will continue to advise that developers may be liable for late payment interest, subject to the standard regulations. Surcharges will be considered on a case by case basis, and until the regulations are amended, we may continue to levy these.
