Hi All, I have completed FY 2022-23 IT return. While completing it, it was showing amount to pay was GBP 5.24. However after submitting the self assessment, it was showing as GBP 541 approx. After dig down more, I was able to know that HMRC charged two different amount on 22nd Jan 2024. Amount charged of GBP 250 approx for 2018-19 and 2019-20 each year plus interest since 2018 & 2019. I couldn't able to get more detail than this. Tried HMRC number as well but call getting disconnected. Do I need to pay this amount without knowing for what they have charged and then ask for explanation? If yes, then how I can raise these queries please ? TIA

You should have received paperwork regarding the earlier tax years balancing payment due.
If not you will need to contact HMRC to review:
Self Assessment: general enquiries
We would advise to pay the outstanding balance to limit the interest charged and once reviewed if amendment needed this can be updated.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have done that. I have paid all outstanding amount of GBP 552 on 30th Jan 2024 as per charges implemented dated 22nd Jan 2024 including interest since 2018 and 2019. On 2nd Feb 2024. I got two HMRC letters dated 25th Jan 2024 stating that I have paid excess amount for 2018-19 and 2019-20. These excess amount is in total of GBP 850 plus. On online, it is saying I have to pay 552 for 2018-19 and 2019-20 where as letters says that I have paid excess of 850 approx for same duration. Please note I have made payment after this letter printed. This is so annoying and didn't understand why there is so much discrepancies are.
