Is this pukka?

just had an e-mail , ostensibly from HMRC saying this: (nothing flagged on HMRC home page)

 

Dear Customer

The Bank of Santander is having problems with their Bill Pay service that customers use to pay their tax by credit card or debit card. We are working with them to sort this out.

There are other ways you can pay us. These are:

· By Faster Payments. You can find out more at: http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/payinghmrc/selfassessment.htm#5

· At your bank · At the Post Office

· By Debit/Credit card

· You can find out more about these other methods of payment at: http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/payinghmrc/selfassessment.htm

Please continue to try to pay us, but if your payment is late because of the problems Santander is experiencing you will not have to pay a penalty or interest for late payment.

You can still send us your tax return as usual.
