As part of the government’s response to the pandemic, anyone with a self-assessment tax bill of up to £30,000 can apply to spread the cost of their tax bill into twelve monthly payments. This should be done by applying through the online self-serve ‘Time to Pay’ facility.

Monthly payments are available to those with a self-assessment tax liability of between £32-30,000. The taxpayer must not have any other tax debts nor any outstanding tax returns. Additionally, the tax cannot be more than 60 days over its due date.

Once the 2019-20 tax return has been submitted, the ‘Time to Pay’ service should be accessed through GOV.UK to set up a direct debit.
