Insurance Premium Tax: send your online return (IPT100)

Use the online service to send your Insurance Premium Tax Return.


Send a return online (sign in to or set up a Government Gateway account)


Use the online service to submit your Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) Return. Agents or personal representatives can also use this service.

Before you start

You’ll need to use a paper return and your old IPT registration number for the accounting period ending December 2016.

For all accounting periods after that, you’ll need to use the online service and your new IPT registration number.

If you’re submitting your own return and don’t have a Government Gateway account, you can create one at the start of the online service.

If you’re an agent or representative and don’t have a User ID and password, you should create one at the Government Gateway.

Make a note of your User ID and password and come back to this page to start your online return.

Agents will need their access code and their client’s IPT registration number.

If you’re unable to use the online service contact HM Revenue and Customs for a paper version of the form.
