Paying income tax by direct debit
HMRC has posted a warning about a problem in its system which may affect you if you have authorised them to charge direct debits to settle your income tax liabilities.
Online amendments to monthly direct debit plans should only be made between the 1st and the 23rd of the month. HMRC is aware of a fault which can stop an amendment made in the final week of the month reaching the taxpayer’s bank. The fault will be fixed and full service restored in April 2011.
