This screen is accessed via the data input tab within the tax return and allows entry of annual payments and royalties. Note that from 2014 onwards there are separate entries made for annual payments and patent royalties. Prior to 2014 there is just one input grid for annual payments.

Annual payments made

When annual payments are made to someone under a legal obligation in connection with a trade or profession, Income Tax must be withheld at basic rate from the amount paid.

If payments have been claimed as a business expense, you should make a note of the payment on the relevant self-employment page.

Do not include interest payments made to somebody who does not live in the UK. These should be paid directly to HMRC.
