HMRC to end payments by personal credit card

Filed Under: Business News, Tax

New rules come into effect from 13 January 2018 meaning that it will no longer be possible for consumers to be charged a handling fee when paying by credit card.  The down side to this is that HMRC will no longer accept credit card payments from this date.  Therefore, if you usually pay your 31 January tax bill by credit card you will need to do so by 12 January 2018.  If you believe you may be affected by this change by HMRC and have not as yet provided us with your tax return information please do so without further delay.

Due to the change detailed above, some of the team will be working over the Christmas break.  Should you need to speak to someone please phone the office on the usual number and leave a message and someone will get back to you.
