HMRC HELPLINE NUMBER FOR BUSINESSES

The dedicated HMRC helpline for businesses and self-employed individuals who have difficulty with paying their tax due to COVID-19 promised at Budget 2020 is now in operation. The number of the helpline is 0800 0159 559. 

The helpline can assist with: 

·         setting up a time to pay arrangement,  

·         suspending debt collection proceedings, and 

·         cancelling late payment penalties and (unusually) interest.  

2,000 experienced HMRC staff are available on the helpline but it is not completely clear whether this is additional resource or a deployment.
