BREAKING NEWS: 13th January 2018 sees HMRC stop accepting payment by personal credit card

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) have confirmed that from 13th January 2018 they will no longer accept payments for outstanding tax liabilities by personal credit card.

What to do now

If you have a tax bill to pay and you usually make payments to HMRC by a personal credit card then it is important that you either pay early, ahead of the 13th January 2018 cut-off date, or you make arrangements to pay by an alternative method, such as by a business credit card, debit cards, BACs, Faster Payments, CHAPs or direct debit.

The deadline for self-assessment tax liabilities due for the year ending April 2017 is obviously fast approaching on 31 January 2018.   

Please do not hesitate to contact our tax team if you do have any queries or need any advice on this matter.
