Pay your Self Assessment tax bill

7. By cheque through the post

You can send a cheque by post to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).


You don’t need to include a street name, city name or PO box with this address.

If you have a reply envelope showing a different address (HMRC, Bradford BD98 1YY), you can still use the envelope to post your cheque.

Allow 3 working days for your payment to reach HMRC.

What to include

Make your cheque payable to ‘HM Revenue and Customs only’ followed by your Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number. You’ll find this on your paying-in slip.

Include the paying-in slip HMRC sent you (if you still get paper statements). Don’t fold the paying-in slip or cheque or fasten them together.

If you don’t have a paying-in slip

You can print a slip to use to pay by post. You can’t use this at a bank.
