Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
The theoretical answer is that you should account for it in the period in which it is due, but not when it was paid. However, such payments are invariably put into the later tax year and unless they push you into higher rates tax I would be inclined to let sleeping dogs lie.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Post to clear my question list.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
Thank you for your support.
