No. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) recommend that you use the VAT online service to submit your VAT Returns and pay by Online VAT Direct Debit. Please follow the VAT Online link from the 'do it online' menu on the HMRC homepage.
Online VAT Direct Debit. To encourage combined use of Online VAT Direct Debit and online returns, you can only pay by this method if you also submit your return online. Adopting these methods in combination will extend the normal due date for your payment by at least 10 calendar days
Direct Debit payment. If you are paying a VAT Return by Direct Debit payment the normal due date for your payment will be extended by up to 7 calendar days. If the seventh day falls on a weekend or bank holiday, the payment must clear to the HMRC bank account by the previous 'bank working day' (bank working days are Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays). The 'Payment date' you enter in Direct Debit payment is the date by which HMRC must receive cleared funds
