Online payment plans

Almost 25,000 Self-Assessment customers have set up an online payment plan to manage their tax liabilities in up to 12 monthly instalments, totalling £69.1 million, HMRC revealed recently.

In October, HMRC increased the threshold for self-serve Time to Pay arrangements from £10,000 to £30,000 for Self-Assessment taxpayers. Once they have completed their 2019-20 tax return and know how much tax they owe, taxpayers can use the self-serve facility to set up monthly direct debits and spread the cost of their tax bill.

Taxpayers can apply for the payment plan via GOV.UK. However, they must meet the following requirements:

  • they need to have no:
    • outstanding tax returns
    • other tax debts
    • other HMRC payment plans set up
  • the debt needs to be between £32 and £30,000
  • the payment plan needs to be set up no later than 60 days after the due date of a debt

Please call if you want to take advantage of this facility, we can point you in the right direction.
