Underpaid tax...

Hi, it appears that for the last financial year I underpaid tax and now have received a payment request.  I have hunted high and low and cannot find an answer to what I think is  a relatively easy question. How long do I have to pay the owed tax before the tax office add interest? They've taken 4 months to tell me I had underpaid, so can I wait a couple of months before I pay them?  Will I get a reminder to pay or just an increased amount to pay!  Any guidance gratefully accepted.
