    I am going through this process and trying to pay online.
    After I fill in the A/c name details, I get two options.
    HMRC Deficiency
    or
    HMRC Quarterly.

    I just want to make a one off payment. Any idea which one to select. I can’t see any other option bar these two?
    Thanks

    Exactly where are you doing this - as far as I'm aware, to pay a one-off payment 'online' you have to get a reference number from HMRC (if you don;t already have one) and then simply make a faster payment via your normal online banking.
    Can you provide a link to what process you are following ?

    I have already been in touch with HMRC. They have given me the 18 digit code and all the other account details and sort code. I told them what year I wanted to pay off (I have 5 years to make up), and they said they would add that to the system, so they know.

    So is it your own online bank that is giving you those two options?
    do the account details match those on the gov.uk website ?

    We've had a pain with this, we paid my wife's voluntary contributions months ago and only a chance look in her government gateway revealed a message saying "underpayment - possible penalties"
    3 hours of a phone call later, it seems to be sorted now.
    We had proof of payment from the bank, it was done by BACS.
