On the 15th December 2017 you will no longer be able to pay tax at any Post Office Branch, fantastic timing! just in time for the January self assessment payment rush
The contract with Santander which allowed this method of payment expires on that date and Santander and HMRC have not reached agreement on a new contract.
To make things worse from the 13th January 2018 you won’t be able to pay by Credit Card either!
So your options will be
- Debit card
- Online Banking
- Cheque in the Post
- Direct Debit
These changes are likely to come as shock to many taxpayers and any reduction in ways to pay can only be bad news for taxpayers!
