Stead Robinson is growing smaller

We have recently taken on our newest team member, Chace.
Chace is an accounts trainee and will be assisting with your Bookkeeping, VAT returns and accounts preparation.
As Alex comes to the end of his AAT training, Alex and Sam now prepare to study for their ACCA exams. Alex and Sam will be working closely with Chace, helping him to get to know our clients and ensure we continue to provide a great service.
If you see him – please say hi!

This month we also welcome Deena back to the team after her maternity leave. Deena is now back part time and is gradually taking some payroll back in house. We thank you for everyone’s patience with the payroll changes we have had this past year. We are doing our very best to make sure we give our clients the best possible service.

Payments on Account are due by 31st July 2016.


Stead Robinson Paying your HMRC billWhat are payments on account?

‘Payments on account’ are advance payments towards your tax bill (including Class 4 National Insurance if you’re self-employed).

You have to make 2 payments on account every year unless:

  • your last Self Assessment tax bill was less than £1,000
  • you’ve already paid more than 80% of all the tax you owe, eg through your tax code or because your bank has already deducted interest on your savings

Each payment is half your previous year’s tax bill. Payments are due by midnight on 31 January and 31 July.

If you still have tax to pay after you’ve made your payments on account, you must make a ‘balancing payment’ by midnight on 31 January next year.

When do I have to make payment by?
Payments are due by midnight on 31 January and 31 July.
