With less than 100 days to go until the deadline for online returns (31 January 2024) there’s no time like the present to complete your tax return.
Sending your return early comes with the benefit of knowing what you owe so you can budget to make the payment by 31 January 2024, and if you need to look at the range of payment options available, filing early allows you to enter a payment plan in good time. Any repayments which may be due can also be claimed early.
UNSURE IF YOU NEED TO FILE A SELF ASSESSMENT TAX RETURN?
You must file a self-assessment return if, in the last tax year, you were:
- self-employed as a ‘sole trader’ and earned more than £1,000 (before taking off anything you can claim tax relief on)
- a partner in a business partnership
- you had a total taxable income of more than £100,000
- you had to pay the High Income Child Benefit Charge
You may also need to send a tax return if you have any untaxed income, such as:
- some COVID-19 grant or support payments
- money from renting out a property
- tips and commission
- income from savings, investments, and dividends
- foreign income
If you are still unsure if you need to file a return, you can use the HM Revenue and customs check service by clicking here.
