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 agree with Angela's comments and Carol's experience.  Most of my phone calls this past week have been from clients enquiring how they may settle their SA tax.  Very few are either happy or able to use electronic means.  Thank you for publishing the debit card number which has been on a Post-It note in front of me ready for the next call!
