Using a Business Tax Dashboard

HM Revenue and Customs' (HMRC's) Business Tax Dashboard is an online service aimed at smaller businesses. You can use the dashboard to see the tax position for your business across different business taxes. It brings together information from your HMRC Online Services.

What is a Business Tax Dashboard?

If you run a business and are signed up for the service, HMRC's Business Tax Dashboard will give you an overall picture of your tax position including payments you have made and amounts you still owe. You will be able to see either Corporation Tax or Self Assessment information, depending on the type of business you have. You can also view information on VAT and PAYE for employers, if you have set up your business for these online services.

You can also see the following information:

  • tax you owe
  • repayments HMRC owes to you
  • payments you have made
  • interest on any late payments
  • penalties you have incurred
  • direct debit payment plans

You can also use this online service to make changes to some business contact details, including your address, telephone number and email address.

Please note: you can no longer sign up for the Business Tax Dashboard service but can still view the overall position for each tax within the relevant online service.

What periods does the dashboard cover?

You can use the dashboard to view information as follows:

  • Corporation Tax - information for accounting periods from 1 October 1993 onwards
  • Self Assessment - information for the tax year 1996 to 1997 onwards
  • PAYE for employers - information for the tax year 2010 to 2011 onwards
  • VAT - information for the current date and previous 15 months


Who can use a Business Tax Dashboard

If you have enrolled for Corporation Tax and Self Assessment under the same account you will only be able to see your Corporation Tax position on the dashboard. You can still view your Self Assessment tax position separately from the 'At a glance’ page within the Self Assessment online service.

If you don't use a Business Tax Dashboard you can still see the position separately for each tax using the relevant HMRC Online Service.

Agents can’t use the dashboard, but can still view their client’s tax position for Corporation Tax and Self Assessment using the relevant online service.

Giving access to others

If you want other people in your business to use the dashboard you need to give them administrator access. This gives them the same level of access as you to the account. You can set up administrators by visiting the Government Gateway website, selecting the 'Manage Administrators' link and following the on-screen instructions.

'Your tax account' trial service

You can no longer set up a Business Tax Dashboard as the service is being replaced with ‘Your tax account’.

‘Your tax account’ is currently being trialled with small groups of customers, who will be invited to set up an account when they log into HMRC Online Services. Trialling the service this way will enable HMRC to test its performance and make improvements (based on customer feedback), before it is formally launched in 2015.

Please note: existing Business Tax Dashboard customers can still use the service. You don’t need to sign up for the tax account trial if you’re invited.
