Contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as soon as possible if you:
- have missed a tax deadline
- know you will not be able to pay a tax bill on time
This guide is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
If you cannot pay your tax bill in full, you may be able to set up a payment plan to pay it in instalments. This is called a ‘Time to Pay’ arrangement.
You will not be able to set up a payment plan if HMRC does not think you will keep up with the repayments. If HMRC cannot agree a payment plan with you, they’ll ask you to pay the amount you owe in full.
