can i pay over due tax of £900 monthly at a low rate


Thanks for yo9ur question, I am Sam and I am one of the UK tax experts here on Just Answer.

Could you advise what you mean by a low rate - do you mean over a period of time, a payment plan?

Could you advise whether you are employed or self employed - and when this tax was owed from.

Hi Avril

Thanks for your response and I am sorry to hear of your health issues and fully appreciate you needing to find a time suitable for you, to respond.

Yes, HMEC will accept a payment over time, put together an income and expenditure schedule of your personal position, so you can identify what's left over, and form this make an offer to HMRC of what you can comfortably afford, per week/per month and offer them that proposal.

They will be willing to consider your proposal, and if agreeable will then put in writing the agreed terms.

Also offer o set up a direct debit for the payments, as this further supports HMRCs willingness to agree a payment plan, as it saves them on admin on having to chase up for missed or late payments.
