Inland Revenue may charge you a late payment penalty if you miss a payment or it’s late. They will also charge you interest if you don’t make your tax payment by the due date.
If you can’t pay your tax by the due date, call Inland Revenue on 0800 775 247. They will look at your payment options, which may include an instalment arrangement, depending on your circumstances.
