Deferring VAT and tax payments

The VAT payments deferral scheme ended on 30th June 2020.

If you’re a UK VAT-registered business that deferred VAT payments between 20th March 2020 and 30th June 2020, you will now need to:

  • set up cancelled Direct Debits in enough time for HMRC to take payment
  • continue to submit VAT returns as normal, and on time
  • pay the VAT in full on payments due after 30 June 2020

Any VAT payments you have deferred between 20 March and 30 June should be paid in full on or before 31 March 2021. For more information please visit GOV.UK.
