UK VAT payments

VAT payments in UK can be made using different systems. The tax authorities accept BACS, CHAPS, direct debit, credit card or payments through online telephone banking. The bank details change depending on the method used. Taxpayers should also take into account the applicable delays until the payment becomes effective, as there is a risk of late payment due to this delay.

Non-established companies will often make payments from an overseas account. The details to be used for these payments are the following:

IBAN number: GB36BARC20051773152391
Account holder: HMRC VAT
Bank address: Barclays Bank PLC; 1 Churchill Place; London; E14 5HP; United Kingdom.

The reference to be included when making VAT payments from an overseas bank account is the VAT number of companies. You should double check the above information before making a payment to HMRC.
