HMRC has extended the scope of beta testing for a new payment service in partnership with Worldpay, to include credit card payments, COTAX and EPAYE.
This follows initial beta testing of this service for self-assessment and VAT debit card payments launched on 15 December 2014.
According to an HMRC spokesperson, further releases will be taking place over the next few months and the system will remain in beta testing until all the functionality has been released and it has passed the necessary Government Digital Service Assessment.
Those opting to make payment online by debit or credit card may be directed to use the beta service by WorldPay.
The new service uses a different service provider to BillPay, hosted by Santander Corporate Banking.
