Tax payers who still need to make self assessment payments to the Inland Revenue before the deadline on Saturday 31 January can do so right up until midnight on the day itself using the BillPay website at www.billpayment.co.uk.
Almost £5 million was paid to the Inland Revenue on 31 January alone last year via the BillPay service operated by Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank
Since then, the Inland Revenue has made it even easier to make payments online by implementing Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank's BillPayPLUS service on its own website. It uses the same proven technology as BillPay but means users can move seamlessly from www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk to the BillPayPLUS page to make a payment.
Internet users do not need an online bank account to make a payment at either website - just a debit card.
Any payments not made in time for the 31 January self assessment deadline will automatically begin attracting interest at the Inland Revenue's current APR of 6.5 per cent. Additionally, there will be a 5.0 per cent surcharge on amounts not paid by 28 February.
Keith Rennie, Head of Bill Payment Marketing at Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank, said: "Anyone who has not returned their self assessment form or paid their tax should do so soon - the additional costs will quickly mount up if they don't!"
The Inland Revenue is one of almost 200 organisations that accept payments via the BillPay service, which has more than 250,000 registered users.
