Hi I've made payments on account last year, do I need to deduct the payments on account I made last year in the self assessment for this year (2021/2022)? If so, in which section should I deduct/fill in in my self assessment? Thanks

You do not need to enter them on the tax return. The calculation will tell you the total amount due for the year, and you subtract the payments on account from that.

Thank you.

I have a similar query. I already filled in my return and it's not showing any payments I made on account. For the year 2020/21, I paid tax plus a payment on account. For simplicity let’s say the payment on account was £3000 The tax bill for 2021/22 comes to £4000 for example, but I’m being asked to pay the £4000 plus another set of payment on account. Why does my assessment not deduct the £3000 I already paid towards the 2021/22 tax year? Why is it not £4000 - £3000 = £1000, plus payment on account? When I submit my return, what do I actually owe?

The calculation needs to show the the tax that is due for the year. Once you have submitted the return your online statement will update within 72 hours.

Thank you.
