Legal update: HMRC is once again offering time to pay arrangements

Published: Monday 10 January 2022

HMRC is once again offering time to pay arrangements to taxpayers who face difficulty settling their tax liability in full at the end of this month, allowing them to spread the payment over up to 12 months.

Where the payment due is less than £30,000, the time to pay arrangement can be set up through your government gateway account – please see this link.

We understand that if the amount you owe is less than £30,000 and you apply online, the application will be automatically agreed.  If the amount owed is greater than £30,000 or you cannot use the online facility, or if you require a longer period than 12 months to repay the debt, then you can call the Self Assessment Payment Helpline on 0300 200 3822.  Please note that the arrangement needs to be set up no later than 60 days after the payment due date and interest will be charged on the amount owed.
