Deferring self-assessment payments on account is just one of the governments measures to support your businesses during COVID19. Are you due to pay a self-assessment payment on account by 31 July 2020? Is the impact of the #coronavirus is going to cause you difficulty in making payment by that date?
You may defer your self-assessment payment until January 2021.
Are you Eligible?
You are eligible if you are due to pay your second self-assessment payment on account on 31 July. You do not need to be self-employed to be eligible for the deferment.
The deferment is optional. If you are still able to pay your second payment on account on 31 July you should do so.
How do you access the scheme?
This is an automatic offer with no applications required. No penalties or interest for late payment will be charged if you defer payment until 31 January 2021.
During the deferral period you can set up a budget payment plan to help you pay the deferred payment on account when it comes due.
If you’re in temporary financial distress because of COVID-19 more help is available from HMRC’s Time to Pay scheme
