HMRC Time To Pay Payment Plan
HMRC Time To Pay
If your company has outstanding tax liabilities, then you could be days away from receiving an Enforcement Notice or Bailiffs attending at the company’s trading premises to seize goods. All of which could be catastrophic to the business.
HM Revenue & Customs will consider a company’s proposal to pay its tax arrears over a future period, but this should be addressed at the earliest point. HMRC will need to be satisfied that the company is able to meet the proposed payments as well as the company’s on-going tax liabilities. This agreement or payment plan is known as ‘Time to Pay’ and is an informal arrangement with HMRC.
HMRC will consider payment plans up to a period of 12 months. If agreed with HMRC, a Time to Pay payment plan can provide a company with some breathing space and allow the directors to focus on turning the business around.

In a turnaround situation, directors’ duties shift from all stakeholders to creditors. Directors need to be aware of company and insolvency legislation and how these laws impact on both the company and them personally.
Obtaining expert advice from a licensed Insolvency Practitioner is therefore strongly recommended when a company is considering proposing payment plans with its creditors.
