If you're no longer in business
You’re in business if you’re an employer, self-employed or a contractor. You need to let us know if you’ve ceased trading, selling or merging your business as this affects your invoice.
Stopping self-employment or closing your business

Providing your liable earnings will help us to send out your final invoice sooner. Otherwise, your final invoice will be sent after the end of the tax year.
If you stopped trading before 31 March 2018 and have filed your Inland Revenue tax return, then you won’t need to provide your final liable earnings. If your payroll is different from your Inland Revenue tax return, we’ll use your Inland Revenue tax return for that period to calculate your final invoice.
What happens next
Once we’ve received your details, we’ll contact you if we need any more information. Otherwise, once we've closed your account, we’ll send out your final reassessed invoice.
Selling or merging your business
If you’re selling your business and closing the Inland Revenue account, you also need to close your account with us. We’ll then send you out a reassessed invoice.
However, if you’re selling and the business is changing hands, the business information will be updated automatically with the next year’s tax return.
