HMRC have announced that they are now able to offer more customers the option of paying by Direct Debit. If taxpayers are registered to use Self Assessment Online, PAYE Online for employers or Corporation Tax Online they can now set up Direct Debit payments online. Taxpayers can also make tax credit repayments by Direct Debit.
In addition, HMRC have also introduced the option of online credit card payments.
HMRC have advised that VAT customers should continue to submit VAT Returns and pay by online VAT Direct Debit. This method can be accessed by using the VAT Online link from the 'do it online' menu on the HMRC homepage.
