Tax is collected in a number of ways. These are:
collection at source throughout the year
payments on account calculated by reference to the tax due for the previous tax year
balancing payments for the tax year (tax liability less tax already deducted at source or paid on account)
Payments on account are required where:
the amount payable at the end of the previous year was more than £1,000, and
the amount collected at source was less than 80% of the total tax liability
Each payment on account is 50% of the previous tax year’s tax liability, less the tax collected at source.

The advantage of this is that, as the Return is filed
