VAT payment deadline calculator

This tool will help you decide when to set up or make your VAT payment to HMRC.

It tells you the:

  • last date for making a payment or setting up a Direct Debit Instruction
  • date by which HMRC must receive cleared funds

It doesn't include deadlines for payments on account, and annual accounting or non-standard tax periods.

Please note - this tool is only a guide. Banks and building societies can operate different arrangements for setting up payments. So before making a payment to HMRC you must check the following with your own bank or building society:

  • Are there any single or daily limits to how much you can transfer from your account?
  • Is there a cut-off time for processing payments on the same day?
  • How long your payment will take to clear into HMRC's bank account?

Checking these details will help to ensure that you do not incur any unnecessary late payment surcharges.
