By debit or corporate credit card online
You can pay online.
There’s a fee if you pay by corporate credit card. The fee is not refundable.
You cannot pay by personal credit card.
Use your 14-character Machine Games Duty (MGD) registration number as your ‘charge reference’.
You’ll find it on:
- your HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) online account
- the MGD Registration Certificate HMRC sent you
HMRC will accept your payment on the date you make it (even on bank holidays and weekends) - not the date it reaches HMRC’s account.
If you’re unable to pay your Machine Games Duty bill in full by card, you should use another payment method like a bank transfer.
