Reminder: coding out deadline reminder is in nine days

Dec 21, 2020

Readers are reminded that 30 December 2020 is the deadline for submitting 2019/20 self-assessment tax returns if the taxpayer wishes to avail of coding out for tax debt of less than £3,000.

You can pay your self-assessment bill through your PAYE tax code (known as coding out) as long as all of the following apply:

  • you owe less than £3,000 on your tax bill;
  • you already pay tax through PAYE, for example you’re an employee or you get a company pension; and
  • you submitted your paper tax return by 31 October or your online tax return online by 30 December.
