I submitted my tax return on 25th Jan 2023, there is no easy way to pay without manually inputting the figure. The issue I have is right now it wants me to pay an extra £6000 even though I paid the payments on account already. It does not appear to be updating because what is even going to update? Your balance No tax is due at the moment 5 days left to pay, but when will my balance update, shall I deduct the £6000 myself? Or will I be fined? I don't really want to pay £6000 extra because HMRC don't automatically take it off. Thanks

I have just noticed in the description it does state: "HM Revenue and Customs will add this amount to your Self Assessment statement of account. It doesn't include any 2021 to 2022 payments on account you may have made or any other amounts outstanding. To help you to decide how much, if anything, to pay by the due date, check your Self Assessment account and use the information above until it transfers over." Therefore I believe I can deduct the £6000 I have made on account and use that figure? Please can you confirm.

I have the exact same question, have you been able to find an answer?

It can take 72 hours for the online position to update once you have submitted the return.

Thank you.

It did update, but it says "overdue" even though I paid and the payments are displayed below it on the very same page. It says a large sum is "overdue" I have been charged interest on payments on account as it wasn't high enough, but it doesn't make sense why the full tax amount is displayed as "overdue" when it's before the deadline has passed?

Thank you. As the deadline to pay is today, do I just work out myself what I owe? So it would be: Tax owed for 2021/22 from my submitted return minus the two payments on account I made for tax year 21/22 plus my first payment on account 22/23 Is this correct? Thanks

Hi solidsponge,

Yes, that is correct.

Thank you.

I never asked that, someone else has decided to use my thread as their own topic. "homework23" can you not start your own topic instead of asking in mine? I now dont have an answer. As I stated since I submitted my return last week, it states the full amount as "Overdue" why does it say this? @HMRC

Hi solidsponge,

We would need to see your updated statement in order to clarify this. 
You will need to contact our helpline:
 Self Assessment: general enquiries

Thank you.
