  • Student Loan paid by direct debit, not through wage

    My self-assessment tax calculation is showing that I owe £3147 for my student loan repayments. Last year, the Student Loan Company contacted me to say to stop paying my student loan through my pay as I will end up overpaying. They set up a direct debit of which I have a month and half left to pay (approx. £300). As I ticked the box in the self-assessment to say that I have a student loan in my self-assessment, I can only assume that the tax calculation assumes I haven't repaid anything. Is this an accurate understanding and should I say 'no' to the question regarding student loan to avoid this payment?
