Income Tax: second payment on account is rapidly approaching

Payments on account are part of the self-assessment system for UK tax payers  and apply when more than 20% of the overall tax due for the previous tax year is not collected at source and is more than £1000.

If you think your circumstances have changed for the year of assessment, do please get in touch so that we can revise the calculation and avoid you paying unnecessary tax.
