The following Personal Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Individuals are required to pay any outstanding income tax, Class 2 and Class 4 national insurance, and capital gains tax due for the tax year by 31 January following the end of the tax year (ie 31 January 2022 for the 2020/21 tax year). From 6 April 2020, UK resident individuals who dispose of residential UK property are required to make a payment of capital gains tax within 30 days of completion. This applies to non-resident individuals in relation to disposals of UK property (whether or not this is residential property) from 6 April 2019.

A credit on the statement could be due to an unclaimed tax repayment for an earlier year or an earlier payment made in excess of the amount actually due.
