Paying your tax to HMRC

Although untied includes a tax calculation of tax payable, this is not necessarily the actual amount that you will need to pay HMRC. They have information that we don't - they may change your personal allowance and there may be other payments due (note, changing your personal allowance in untied may not change the tax calculation). For someone whose personal allowance is at or near the standard level, it will be a close approximation to put money aside.

It's only when you submit your tax return that HMRC calculate what you need to pay. They'll let you know via your personal tax account online and via post. You may get an email but beware email scams!

How to pay your taxes without using untied

You will need your UTR - the Unique Taxpayer Reference that is saved in your untied app under Profile. It's ten digits long.

To pay your tax:

  • You can go to HMRC's website here which will allow you to select a way to pay including by credit / debit card. Note that credit cards incur a fee. You will need your UTR. See the walkthrough below
  • You can also pay by bank transfer. The bank details are below. Use Cumbernauld unless told to pay Shipley eg on a payment request.

Don't make a payment to any other account without being sure it's actually HMRC.
