Self Assessment reminders and payslips - January 2016

HMRC will not be issuing paper statements and payslips to self-assessment taxpayers to remind them of the 31 January 2016 filing and payment date unless the taxpayer has filed their 2014/15 tax return by 31 December 2015, and has not opted for digital only communications from HMRC.

HMRC will not be issuing paper SA reminders and payslips for taxpayers who file their 2014/15 tax returns in January 2016 or for those taxpayers who have opted for digital-only SA communications from HMRC. Payment options available without a payslip are by debit/credit card, CHAPS/BACS, direct debit or via online or telephone banking.

Payment by cheque through the post is available but only with a paying in slip. If you do not have a paying in slip you can print one off http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/gds/payinghmrc/payslip-sa1.htm but this cannot be used to pay over the counter at a bank, building society or Post Office.

Taxpayers who would like to make their SA tax payment over the counter at banks, building societies and Post Offices must therefore file their 2014/15 tax returns before 31 December 2015, and must not have opted for digital only communications from HMRC.
