Is the 'tax owed' figure at the top tax I owe HMRC or they owe me?

If the number at the top is positive, it is tax you owe to the HMRC; if negative you have overpaid tax and HMRC owe you.

If you click on the Summary button next to that, you'll see a breakdown of how that is reached, in a .pdf.

After you add Payments On Account information, and after you submit, you'll see the amount you owe by 31 Jan, which can be different to the tax owed for 2013-14 since that incorporates POA from last year and POA for next year.
