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 found the easiest way for non internet banking clients was to use the agents on line client record and then get the client to provide the debit card details to make payment by clicking the "how to pay" icon and then pay by debit card. There doesn't seem to be any reason not to use the clients card details and it seems to work perfectly. The identity fields are prepopulated with the clients UTR+K so I can't see any objection as long as the client is happy to give us the card details as they would for any debit card purchase from a retailer. This can either be by coming in or by telephone. Can anyone see a problem with this?
