HMRC Payment Deadlines

In order to avoid penalties and interest, it is important to make sure you pay HMRC on time for tax, employee and employer national insurance and student loan deductions.


Here is a note of each quarter’s payment and payment deadlines:


Quarter / Period for / Payment Date

Quarter 1 / 6th April to 5th July / 22nd July
Quarter 2 / 6th July to 5th October / 22nd October
Quarter 3 / 6th October to 5th January / 22nd January
Quarter 4 / 6th January to 5th April / 22nd April


If your PAYE exceeds over £1,500 a month, you will have to pay HMRC monthly instead of quarterly.


The best way to pay them is directly via their website, you will get a confirmation email from them stating all the transaction details in case there was ever a dispute of payments:
