Making Payments to HMRC – Reminder to use HMRC’s new bank account detailsWednesday, January 27th, 2010
Early in 2009 HMRC announced that it was changing its bankers from the Bank of England to Citi and Royal Bank of Scotland Group and that new sort codes and accounts numbers were being introduced in April 2009.
The old accounts details have remained in use since then but HMRC is now warning that the old accounts are to be closed. Employers who have not already changed their systems and records should do so as soon as possible to avoid the risk of payments being returned and penalties being imposed for late payments.
Employers paying by Direct Debit are not affected.
Guidance for employers who pay in different ways is provided at the HMRC link below.
