    Three possible filing dates

    Quarter ended 28 Feb

    Option 1 - old manual filing system used by very few now - Return posted and payment had to be processed by HMRC by end of following month ie 31 March.

    Option 2 - Electronic payment used by many - you get an extra seven calendar days - payment and e-submission by 7 April

    Option 3 - Signed up for direct debit by HMRC - payment taken up to three days later ie by 10 April.

    Hope this helps
