HMRC is urging customers not to delay completing their tax return.

Those who miss the deadline could face an initial £100 fine followed by further penalties.

People who are unable to pay what they owe in full may be able to set up a payment plan, allowing them to spread the cost over monthly instalments.

Since April 2022, 45,600 self-assessment customers have set up a time-to-pay arrangement.

A range of payment options is listed on gov.uk.
