HMRC changed bank account details

July 2007

Taxpayers who currently make bank payments direct to the Accounts Office at Shipley and Cumbernauld should note the following bank account change.

The new bank account details are:

Accounts Office Shipley

Account Name: HMRC Shipley
Sort Code: 08 32 10
Account Number: 12001020

Accounts Office Cumbernauld

Account Name: HMRC Cumbernauld
Sort Code: 08 32 10
Account Number 12001039

If you use online banking and have stored templates to make payments to Shipley or Cumbernauld, make sure you change them to include the new account details set out above.

Full details of the change can be found on the HMRC website .

There is also a cryptic one step forwards, one step back note on the HMRC web site; it reads:

"HMRC is aware that some customers are experiencing problems making payments from their banks to the new HMRC bank accounts. We are working to resolve this with the banks involved as quickly as possible. If this affects you, you can continue to use the old HMRC account details to make your payments. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you."
