With effect from 15 December 2017, HMRC has announced that the option will no longer be available to provide payment for tax via the Post Office, and that after the 13 January 2018, HMRC has removed the ability to pay with a personal credit card. This is due to the expiry of the contract with Santander which was used for this method of payment. This is also aligned with credit card payment fees no longer being permitted.
HMRC advises that, for tax payers who have previously paid via the Post Office or with a credit card, payments can still be made at banks using a payslip, and that payments for self-assessment can still be posted to HMRC.
