Surcharge on all corporate card payments to HMRC from 1 November

27 October: ICAEW’s Tax Faculty reminds organisations and tax agents that from 1 November 2020 there will be a surcharge on payments made by corporate debit cards to HMRC.

A surcharge already occurs for payments made to HMRC by corporate credit cards, but from 1 November this will also apply to debit card payments.

Taxpayers wanting to avoid the surcharge can pay via:

  • Direct Debit,
  • Faster Payment,
  • BACs, or
  • CHAPs.

There is also no surcharge on payments made by personal debit cards.
