    As long as it allows a money transfer to a current account. You then use the money you put into your bank account to pay the tax bill.

    HMRC dont accept credit card payments for personal tax bills. They do charge interest, so if you owe them, pay something rather than nothing to keep the interest down.

    Link the card to Curve card if you have one and use curve card to make the payment to HMRC.

    I have heard others have done that without any problems.
