Thousands of people take advantage of online payment plans to pay self-assessment

(1 minute to read)

HMRC: ‘We’re here to help customers get their tax right and if you are worried about how to pay your self-assessment bill, help and support is available’.

As many as 21,600 people have set up a payment plan over the last seven months to help spread the cost of their tax bill into manageable monthly instalments.

Data shows that this is an increase of approximately 3,900 people compared to the previous year.

HM Revenue and Customs are urging those who haven’t already done so, to submit their tax returns for the 2021 to 2022 tax year as soon as possible so that they know how much they owe well before the deadline date of the 31st of January 2023.

Filing early also means those who are unable to pay their tax bill in full by the deadline, will have plenty of time to access support and advice. HMRC may be able to help by arranging an affordable payment plan.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’s Director General for Customer Services, said, “We’re here to help customers get their tax right and if you are worried about how to pay your self-assessment bill, help and support is available. Visit GOV.UK and search ‘help pay Self Assessment’ to find out more.”

Why Dolan Accountancy?

Dolan Accountancy was set up by Simon J Dolan, the man behind the well-known brand SJD Accountancy. With over 25 years experience in the contracting marketing, Dolan Accountancy has the heritage, reputation and credibility you can trust. Working closely with our sister company, Contractor Umbrella, it means we can offer one low cost, fixed fee package at £105 + VAT per month. This gives you the flexibility of using both our Limited Company Accountancy Services and our award winning Umbrella Service, for one inclusive cost. We don’t believe in tiered packages or hidden extra fees, instead we aim to give you everything you need, including:

  • Free Company Formation – This is where it all begins. Once you have decided on an available name, we will form your company free of charge (if using our accountancy services) and it will be ready for you to use in as little as three hours.
  • Free use of Contractor Umbrella – With changes in Public Sector IR35 Legislation we understand that sometimes you are required to contract via an umbrella company. We will keep your limited company ticking over, while you work margin free via our sister company, Contractor Umbrella.
  • A Dedicated Accountant – Your accountant will be there for any company or personal tax advice that you require. We will never outsource work, even to internal teams.
  • Free Access to FreeAgent – The founder behind the multi award winning FreeAgent platform was one of Simon’s first clients, therefore it only seems fitting that we offer all of our clients access to FreeAgent, free of charge.
  • Free Business Banking – We have decided to waive our commission so our clients can use Tide free of charge for the first year.
  • Unlimited IR35 Status Reviews – We will review all of your contracts for IR35 purposes and provide you with our professional opinion as to its status.
  • Free Registered and Director’s Service Office Address – Sometimes you just don’t want your home address on display at Companies House. When you sign up to our accountancy services, we will offer the use of our address as an alternative.
  • Your Business and Personal Taxation Needs – This includes Company Accounts, Director’s Personal Tax Return, VAT Returns, Payroll, Corporation Tax and Dividend advice, to name just a few.
  • Same day payments- We offer same day payments as standard providing funds are received into our account by 9am, for no additional fee.
