Requesting to pay underpaid tax in full

Postby Tompoc1965 » Sat Feb 10, 2024 5:36 pm

I owe around £1100 in underpaid PAYE, which I do not dispute. Because of the amount, HMRC are collecting this via my 2024/25 tax code. This will cause complications because it will push me into higher rate tax when I should not be. I would rather just pay the amount in full now. Can I insist on this? I am not on self assessment. Thanks.

You don't need to insist on anything, just make a voluntary payment of the tax owed and shortly after that HMRC will automatically update your tax code to remove the underpayment you have voluntarily paid.

If you make the payment now (which can probably be done via your personal tax account) then there should be enough time for HMRC to issue a new tax code for the start of the next tax year.

Thanks for that, but there is no amount showing as outstanding on the online tax account, as they have already adjusted it to next year's code. So I can't see any mechanism for making the payment?

Send a cheque then, making it clear what the payment is for (your National Insurance number will be important).
