How to pay your Self-Assessment tax bill
Updated: Aug 24
When is tax payable?
Payments for Self-Assessment tax bills are payable twice yearly by:
31 January (last year's tax AKA "balancing payment" + first payment on account*)
31 July (second payment on account*)
*You'll usually be asked to make Payments on Account if last year's tax bill exceeded £1,000.
How to pay your tax?
Whichever payment method you choose, be sure to quote your Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR), which we provide by email once we've submitted your SA Return. It looks like "0000000000K".
The video below explains how to make payments via HMRC's app.
