On 24 September 2020, the Chancellor announced that businesses who deferred VAT due from 20 March to 30 June 2020 will now have the option to pay in smaller payments over a longer period.
Instead of paying the full amount by the end of March 2021, HMRC have confirmed businesses can make smaller payments up to the end of March 2022, interest free.
You will need to opt-in to the scheme, and for those who do, this means that your VAT liabilities due between 20 March and 30 June 2020 do not need to be paid in full until the end of March 2022.
Those that can pay their deferred VAT can do so by 31 March 2021.
If you are still unable to pay the VAT due and need more time, you can contact HMRC by phoning: 0300 200 3835.
More information on the scheme will be available in the coming months and we will keep you up to date when changes occur.
