Notice of assessment with no request for immediate payment

These are issued if you pay all, or most of your tax by tax deductions from your salary and you aren't a new taxpayer*.

If you receive this type of assessment but your salary deductions will not cover the tax, you should contact us immediately.

​*Arrangements for new taxpayers and certain exempt persons is defined in Article 41H of the  Income Tax Law.

Notice of assessment requesting payment 

    These are issued if:

    • you don't pay tax by salary deductions
    • only a small amount of your total income is a salary
    • you are a 'new taxpayer' and your salary deductions were not enough to fully pay the full amount of tax due

    You may have received a payment on account notice earlier in the year, in which case the balance to pay by the December due date should be the amount of the assessment less the payment you made.

    If the balance is not paid by the due date then a surcharge may be incurred.

    What happens if you pay your tax bill late

    Checks to make when you receive your tax notice of assessment

    Check your assessment it to make sure that you agree with:

    • the income assessed
    • deductions
    • allowances and reliefs

    If you have benefited from marginal relief we will have attached a calculation to your tax assessment showing you how it's worked out.

    It will include deductions that are not available at the standard rate calculation, eg mortgage interest relief and childcare tax relief.

    If you don't agree with the notice of assessment

    You can appeal to the Comptroller of Income Tax in writing within 40 days of the date on the notice giving:

    • the reason for your appeal
