How to pay HMRC over the telephone.

Without the self assessment reminders this year to submit and pay, many taxpayers are wondering left how to pay.  Unless they have internet access they are unable to pay, as they do not have paying in slips for use at the post office or bank. Looking at HMRC website there is no indication that tax can be paid over the telephone. 

I have just telephoned HMRC agent helpline and although HMRC do accept payment over the telephone, the person agreed that she could not find it on the HMRC "Pay your self assessment tax bill".

For those in the same position having to fend off frustrated clients, the number is 0300 200 3402.

  • I also have a quite a few clients who don't have a computer and will never have one.
    It has taken us a lot of time finding ways for them to pay - thanks for the phone number, is that the up to date number? I tried one from  ICAEW contact list (June 2014) but it was no longer valid.
    I don't like recommending clients to post cheques to HMRC as we have had a couple stolen from the the post and banked elsewhere.
    If HMRC are not going to send out payslips, we need a way of printing a payslip that the banks will accept. 
    This has been a very annoying extra issue to deal with in January.
