Have you tried the HMRC App?

Using App to check tax bill and make payment
I have - and I was pleasantly surprised

I was able to quickly and easily check how much tax I owe, how to pay it and then went on to check my NI contributions and state pension forecast. I'll explore the full features below - but I highly recommend downloading and taking a look.
