Paying tax on time is vital to prevent a late payment surcharge... but if you absolutely can't, please don't bury your head in the sand.
If you cannot pay your tax bill in full, you may be able to set up a payment plan to pay it in instalments. This is called a ‘Time to Pay’ arrangement.
If you have missed a tax deadline, or know you will not be able to pay a tax bill on time, please look at this guidance from HMRC for more information on the options that are potentially available to you.
