Self Assessment payments can be deferred – HMRC
HMRC is reminding those who are having difficulty paying their second 2019/20 Self Assessment payment on account can take advantage of automatically deferring the payment until 31 January 2021.
The second Self Assessment payment on account for 2019-20 is ordinarily due at the end of July, but the government previously announced it is supporting the self-employed and others by allowing them to defer this payment. This option to defer is on top of additional support for the self-employed through £7.8 billion in grants paid through the Self Employment Income Support Scheme.
