We are fast approaching the 31st January filing deadline.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) must receive your tax return and any money you owe by the deadline.
You’ll get a penalty if HMRC send you a notice to send a Tax Return and you miss the deadline for submitting it or paying your bill.
If you cannot pay your Self Assessment tax bill
You can set up a payment plan to spread the cost of your latest Self Assessment bill if:
- you owe £30,000 or less
- you do not have any other payment plans or debts with HMRC
- your tax returns are up to date
- it’s less than 60 days after the payment deadline
You do not need to contact HMRC if you set up a payment plan online through your Government Gateway account. – This is the same account you would have used to claim the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme grant.
