Payment problems: If you can't pay the VAT
If you're registered for VAT, you need to make sure you submit your VAT Return on time, along with any payment. If you don't, you may be liable to fees and penalties. So if you think you won't be able to pay your VAT by the due date, you should act immediately. There are several things you may be able to do to help yourself, and the Inland Revenue Department is also there to help you.
