We do not offer the option to pay by automatic payment across the year. If the full amount is not paid by 20 October, a penalty will be charged on 31 October.
For this reason we recommend setting up a direct debit as then your payments would be calculated out across the year to 30 June 2023. If you do choose to pay by automatic payment, this will be self-monitored and you will need to make sure you clear your balance by 20 October 2022 to avoid incurring a penalty.
