Customer Question

Hello!
I am newly self employed (October 2014) and had small revenues and no taxes due for the 2014/2015 period, and thus nothing to pay by 31st January 2016. Am I required to pay any advance tax payments for the 2015/16 year on 31st January and 31st July, as from what I can see that requirement is based on the amount due for 2014/15, which was zero.
Thanks!

Thanks for your question. Although advance payments for tax year 2015/16 are based on tax payable in 2014/15 (in the absence of actual numbers) you should make a payment on account if you think the profits and tax payable for 2015/16 would be greater than zero. This would avoid any interest charges for late payment.You can make a payment on account online using HMRC site and details about how to pay are covered there. I hope this is helpful and answers your question.DefSemiHidden="true" DefQFormat="false" DefPriority="99"LatentStyleCount="267">UnhideWhenUsed="false" QFormat="true"
