Hello. I'm self-employed an did my tax return earlier this year for 2021/22. I set up a direct debit payment on 19th Jan for the full amount I owe HMRC for the tax year to be paid. The date of collection was automatically set to 26th Jan, when the amount left my bank account with the reference number attached. However, my online HMRC account still tells me that I owe that amount. I'm aware that the deadline for payment is 31st January, and would like to avoid a penalty as I have already paid in time. Will HMRC take into acount that the money left my bank account in time and the delay was on HMRC's part due to administration and therefore not issue a penalty? Many thanks.
