Important Information about Changes to Paying HMRC

VAT flat rate scheme

HMRC are making some changes to the ways its customers can make payments.

The pay at the Post Office service will be withdrawn from 15th December 2017 and from 13th January 2018, HMRC will no longer accept payment by personal credit card. Debit cards and corporate credit cards will continue to be accepted.

There are still many ways to pay including:

  • Direct Debit
  • Online or telephone banking (including Faster Payments, Bacs and CHAPS)
  • Debit/Corporate Credit card online or by telephone.

HMRC feel that these are more secure and will save their customers the time and expense of going to a post office or bank.
