Most of the time, they mean the same. Sometimes they cannot be used interchangeably.

Later = not now, or not at a time you are talking about, but some time after this

Phrases: a month/year later, much later, later that month/year, later in the day/month/year

Later on = later on in time = at some time after the present time

“Later on” is used for distant future.

I arrived later than usual. (Later on will not work here)

Bye, see you later.

Few people say “Bye, see you later on.”

Later can also be used as an adjective, not “later on”

later model, later performance, later years

e.g. She spent her later years in a nursing home.

To play safe, especially if you are not sure, just say or write “later “
