When to pay

Each return will show the date which you must send it back to HMRC by. Unless you’re on non-standard accounting periods, the due date is the last working day of the month (excluding any weekends or public holidays) following the end of the return period.

HMRC offers a 7 day delayed payment concession if you pay by Direct Debit.

How much time to allow

Make sure you pay HMRC by the deadline or you may have to pay a penalty.

The time you need to allow depends on how you pay.

Payment method Time allowance
Direct Debit 10 working days
Online or telephone banking (Faster Payments) Same or next day
CHAPS Same or next day
Bacs 3 working days
By cheque through the post 3 working days

If the deadline falls on a weekend or bank holiday, make sure your payment reaches HMRC on the last working day before (unless you’re paying by Faster Payments).

How to pay

Direct Debit

Complete form EEITT15. You’ll need your 15-digit reference number and bank details.

Allow 10 working days for HMRC to set one up.

You’ll need to use another method to pay if your Direct Debit is not set up in time.

HMRC will automatically collect the amount shown on your return after your Direct Debit is set up.

Bank details for online or telephone banking, CHAPS, Bacs

You can pay by Faster Payments, CHAPS or Bacs to HMRC’s bank account.
