Struggling to pay your January tax bill?

Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 05/02/2019

Have you missed the 31 January 2019 deadline for paying your tax bill? The 31 January was not just the final date for submission of your Self Assessment tax return but also an important date for payment of other tax due. This included the payment of any Capital Gains Tax due in relation to the 2017-18 tax year, and also the due date for your first payment on account for 2018-19.

If you were unable to pay some or all of the monies due to HMRC, you need to be pro-active and contact HMRC as soon as possible. Avoiding the issue and hoping the problem will go away is only making things worse. You can contact HMRC to apply to make a payment plan and seek to agree a way forward. We can also help deal with this on your behalf and seek to negotiate the most favourable repayment terms possible.

Requests for time to pay or other arrangements are usually handled by the Business Payment Support Service (BPSS). The BPSS is available to all taxpayers (not just businesses).

The services offered by the BPSS depend on individual circumstances but can include:

  • agreeing instalment arrangements
  • suspending any debt collection proceedings
  • reviewing penalties for missing statutory deadlines
  • reducing any payments on account
  • agreeing to defer payments due to short-term cash flow difficulties

Need help negotiating with HMRC?

If you have missed the 31 January payment date and have received a payment demand, like a tax bill or a letter threatening you with legal action, then you need to take immediate action. Call the HMRC payment support service as soon as you can, their contact numbers are on the GOV.UK website. If you need help considering your options please call our offices.
