You can pay your Self Assessment bill using Faster Payments, CHAPS or Bacs.

What you’ll need

You’ll need to use your 11-character payment reference when you pay. This is your 10-digit Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) followed by the letter ‘K’.

You can find it either:

Your payment may be delayed if you use the wrong reference number.

How long it takes

Payments by Faster Payments (online or telephone banking) usually reach HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on the same or next day, including weekends and bank holidays.

CHAPS payments usually reach HMRC the same working day if you pay within your bank’s processing times.

Bacs payments usually take 3 working days.

Payments from overseas may take longer - check with your bank.

Multiple payments by CHAPS

Send an online CHAPS enquiry form if you want to make a single CHAPS payment for multiple Self Assessment bills, using more than one payment reference number.
