Payments on account for 2013-14

I need to reduce payments on account for 2013-14 but when I go to do this in the SA section on the HMRC website it only offers me to reduce the payments on account for tax year 5th April 2013??

Is this just a glitch on the site or does it work?

Thanks in advance

My experience is that you can't within the HMRC software, so you have to make the application separately.

Commercial software (like TaxCalc, which is what I use) lets you do it, so I don't know why the HMRC software is so backward.

Form SA303

If this can't be done online, then use paper form SA303: 

It might just be possible to complete SA303 equivalent online outside the SA return filing (ie. as a different task within SA online).

If done by paper form then I recommend a "White space" note on the tax return (if HMRC software allows!) along the lines "I have completed paper form SA303 to reduce my 2013/14 payments on account" (and state the figures involved).

You can do it online apparently!

Have spoken to HMRC and they say as I havent submitted my return it only shows the payments on account for current tax years.
