Could you help me understand the likely sequence of events if I file early, and I end up owing less than I have paid on my first payment on account? Specifically, I had an increase in income in 2020-21 that led to significant payments on account (I paid half on 31 Jan). That additional income was absent in 2021-22. I will file on Apr 6 of 2022, and I expect to owe very little. I should be owed a refund because of my first payment on account, but what do I do about my second payment on account due in July? Must I pay this even after I've demonstrated on Apr 6 that this is unnecessary?

Hi,

If you are due a refund, you can either claim the full amount back or leave the amount on the account that would cover the second Payment on Account.

Thankyou.
