Business Payment Support Scheme – a roaring success
The Business Payment Support Scheme was launched in the November Pre Budget report. The scheme is intended to provide an easy route for businesses in trouble to arrange extra time to pay their tax liabilities.
Businesses and their advisers can contact a special support line to arrange a time to pay agreement. The helpline is open from 8 am every day, until 8pm on weekdays and 4pm on weekends. Staff can consider the circumstances of the business and give a quick response – often within ten minutes.
