I am really confused. Why is my 2020/21 View Statement telling me I have to pay( by Jan 31 ) the full amount of 2020/21 tax I owe plus a payment on account (presumably a pre-pay for the tax Year 2021/22). Yet in Jan 2021 I already paid my 2019/20 bill, plus the first payment of what I thought was half the 'on account' payment you thought would be due for 2020/21, and then I also as required made a second payment Jul 2021. I I thought these were pre-payments for the tax year 2020/21. But at the same time my Statement says I am in already in credit to the value of one of those payments and asks if I want a repayment! Why, when I have already made prepayments for 2020/21, am I now supposed to pay on Jan 31 the full amount of tax calculated as due for 2020/21, plus the first 2021/22 on-account prepayment? Why I have I paid money on account and am in credit, yet the system is telling me I have to pay the whole amount all over again?

Hi JM-M M-M,

I would contact our Self Assessment department, as any payments for the Payments on Account should not be sitting as a credit now and should have been allocated against these payments:

 Self Assessment: general enquiries

Thank you.
