The Self- Assessment payment on account, that is ordinarily due to be paid to HMRC by 31 July 2020 may now be deferred until January 2021.
If you are due to make a Self-Assessment payment on account on 31 July 2020 then you are eligible for the deferment.
The deferment is optional - anyone able to pay their second self-assessment payment on 31 July 2020, should still do so.
This is an automatic offer with no applications required.
No penalties or interest for late payment will be charged if you defer payment of your July 2020 payment on account until January 2021.
HMRC has also scaled up their Time to Pay offer to all firms and individuals who are in temporary financial distress as a result of coronavirus and have outstanding tax liabilities.
