Do filters need to be parallel to the lens or will it cause issues?

I am considering creating a custom filter holder for a lens but would like to know how important is it that the filter holder hold the filter(UV, ND glass) parallel flat to the lens?

Will this affect the image, how flare is produced, light transmission, etc. or is the distance between the filter and lens too small to make any noticeable effect?

Do manufacturers apply some form of rule when creating their filter threads for their lens?

Thank you.
