At your bank or building society

You’ll need to order paying-in slips online or by phone from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) before you can pay this way. It can take up to 6 weeks for them to arrive.

Use the paying-in slips to pay at your own bank or building society by cash or cheque. Make cheques payable to ‘HM Revenue and Customs only’ followed by your 9-digit VAT registration number.

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

Allow 3 working days for your payment to reach HM Revenue and Customs’ bank account.
