Reference number

You’ll need to use your PAYE Settlement Agreement (PSA) reference number as the payment reference.

It starts with an X and is on the payslip HMRC sent you. If you do not have your PSA number, contact the office that’s dealing with your application.

Do not use your PAYE Accounts Office reference number. Your payment may be delayed if you use the wrong reference.

How long it takes

Payments made by Faster Payments (online or telephone banking) will usually reach HMRC on the same or next day, including weekends and bank holidays.

CHAPS payments usually reach HMRC the same working day if you pay within your bank’s processing times.

Bacs payments usually take 3 working days.

Check your bank’s transaction limits and processing times before making a payment.
