I am currently doing my self-assessment tax return for 22/23. When I look at the tax calculation breakdown, I cannot see any reference or mention to payments on account that I’ve already made for the 22/23 tax year. The balancing payment does not include those payments. I have the below message: “This amount does not take into account any 2022-23 payments on account you may have already made” I want my balancing payment to take into account the ‘payments on account’ that I’ve already made – I want those ‘payments on account’ to be deducted from the balancing payment. How do I do this – where on the self-assessment tax return can I make this deduction? Many thanks

The calculation is there to show the full amount due for the year.
If you have already made payments on account, deduct them from the amount due for 22/23.

Hi, Thank you - please can you tell me where on the self assessment form do I make the deductons? Many thanks

You don't enter them on your tax return. You deduct them from the amount you have to pay. For example if your return shows a total liability of £5,000 and you have (or will have) made payments on account of £1,500 in January and July 2023 then you need to pay the remaining balance of £2,000 (in January 2024). Depending on the circumstances there may also be POA for 2023-24 payable in January and July 2024.

You don't include payments on account paid on the return.
When the calculation informs you of the total amount due for 22/23 you deduct the payments you have already made from that figure.
