I've fallen behind with my tax
If you have unpaid Income Tax, VAT or National Insurance you need to contact Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as soon as possible.
Make sure you keep HMRC up to date with your situation. If you're struggling to pay, let them know, otherwise they'll assume you're avoiding making your payments.
First check that HMRC are asking you to pay the right amount. Make sure you’ve given them correct up to date information about your business takings and expenses. If you don’t do this, the tax bill may be over-estimated.
Next make an offer to pay off the debt at an amount you can afford. If you need help working out how much you can afford to pay we can help. All you need to do is speak to one of our advisors and we'll help you put a budget together and work out how much you can afford to pay towards your tax.
Even if your offer of payment is refused you should start paying the amount you can afford straight away.
