Self-assessment - DIY time-to-pay options

Newsletter issue - February 2021.

The tax return filing deadline for 2019/20 has now passed. However, where taxpayers have struggled to pay any tax they owed by the 31 January deadline, it is still possible to set up an instalment plan - or "time-to-pay" - arrangement. In the right circumstances, this can be done online with no need to contact HMRC by phone.

An online plan can be set up if the taxpayer:

  • owes £30,000 or less;
  • does not have any other payment plans or debts with HMRC;
  • does not have any outstanding tax returns; and
  • it's less than 60 days after the payment deadline.

This plan can include the second payment on account that was originally due in July 2020 where this was deferred.
