HMRC update Pay other taxes, penalties or enquiry settlements guidance
Released 11 October 2017
HMRC will stop accepting payment of taxes, penalties and enquiry settlements by personal credit card from 13 January 2018.
HMRC have updated their online guide Pay other HMRC taxes, penalties or enquiry settlements, which explains how to pay taxes, penalties and enquiry settlements not covered in other paying guidance, if the payment reference starts with X, at the section ‘Pay online with a debit or credit card’ to reflect that from 13 January 2018 it will not be possible to pay HMRC with a personal credit card. Other accepted means of payment are: online by direct debit, online by telephone, faster payments, CHAPS or Bacs to HMRC’s Shipley account, online by debit card, at a bank or building society or by cheque in the post.
