I included in my 2020-21 return all income received a large part of which related to pension arrears dating back to 2008-09. I attached the letter from the pension scheme administrators but this was ignored when the tax calculation was made. I subsequently sent a letter in November which should originally have been dealt with by 21 December, and now should be dealt with by 4 February(!). I have paid the amount I believe is due but there is a large sum showing as overdue. Should I pay this to prevent the bailiffs turning up?

It may be worth contacting us to get an update on the progress of your letter :

Self Assessment: general enquiries   .

If you can pay the amount due in the meantime then HMRC can refund this if due back when the arrears of pay have been allocated. 

Thank you.

I'm not keen to pay £5,000 unnecessarily!
