Budget payment plan
You can set up a 'budget payment plan' to make regular payments in advance.
The payment plan lets you:
- decide how much to pay each week or month
- stop paying for up to 6 months
Set up your plan using your HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) online account. Go to the Direct Debit section and choose the budget payment option when filling in the Direct Debit form.
You must be up to date with your previous Self Assessment payments to use this option.
If the total you've paid during the year doesn't cover your bill in full, you'll have to pay the difference by the payment deadlines.
