(6) Tax payable by an employee as a result of a direction carries interest, as if it were unpaid tax due from an employer, in accordance with regulation 82 (interest on tax overdue).

(7) The tax payable carries interest from the reckonable date until whichever is the earlier of—

(a)the date on which payment is made, or

(b)the date (if any) immediately before the date on which it begins to carry interest under section 86 of TMA(1).
