What to do if you cannot pay your tax

HMRC will consider extended options for settling your outstanding tax bill. The key is to contact HMRC, explain why you can’t pay on time, and discuss how you can settle any outstanding liabilities.

If you can’t pay before the deadline, call the Business Payment Support Service. Anyone can use this service, not just businesses.

If you’ve missed your payment date

Call the Business Payment Support Service if you haven’t received a bill or letter about payment yet.
