Hi, Thanks for the reply! I have submitted the reduce your payments section. After the self assessment was calculated, even though i should only have to pay back around £2500 for child benifit and around £250 for marriage allowance, I owe £6,077.70, below: stimated payment due by 31 January 2024 You must pay the total of any tax and class 4 NIC due for 2022-23 plus first payment on account due for 2023-24 by 31 January 2024 (Note: 2nd payment of £1,474.17 due 31 July 2024) This amount does not take into account any 2022-23 payments on account you may have already made 2022-23 balancing payment £3,129.35 1st payment on account for 2023-24 due 31 January 2024 £1,474.17 Total due by 31 January 2024 £4,603.52 However i have also recieved a coding notice with the below: less Child Benefit Charge £6165 Less Adjustment for estimated tax you owe (this year) £1570 Im Stuggling to understand what i have to pay, what is coming out of my PAYE and when i need to pay? Thanks

Hi JDMDev,

Based on your tax code, we are trying to deduct any amounts due for 23/24 through your code, so that when you file a return you have nothing to pay for that year.
If you contact our webchat we can review this as you usually shouldn't have a payment on account and a deduction in your tax code.

Thank you.
