Christmas is drawing in on us at an ever increasing pace and at this time…
the 31st July represents the deadline for paying your second payment on account towards your 09/10 tax bill if you are self employed. If this payment is submitted after the 31st, interest will start to be charged by HMRCE.
If you are unable to make the full payment on time, I’d suggest calling the HMRCE payment support line, who are very helpful. They’ll be able to help you put a suitable payment plan together, which will avoid you going into arrears.
You should be aware that they will only help you with a plan, if you are currently not in arrears already.
They can be contacted on 0845 366 1204
