Don’t let the Christmas period get in the way of the Self-Assessment deadline!

Don’t let the Christmas period get in the way of the self-assessment deadline!

Christmas is always a busy time of year, but for us it doesn’t stop after the festivities are over. With the Self-Assessment tax return deadline on January 31st, January is our busiest time of year.

A self-assessment tax return is required if you are a sole trader earning over the personal tax allowance, the director of a company who receives dividends, or if you have additional income which is not taxed through PAYE. If you are a client of ours on our Young Business service, Growing Business service, Rapid Growth service, or a sole trader then we take can care of this for you.

Send us your information early to avoid missing the deadline

Our clients on these services have the stress of completing their tax return taken away as we do a calculation to work out how much tax they owe and complete all the HMRC forms on their behalf. Once the tax return is approved by the client, we make sure it is filed with HMRC before the deadline.

As a firm, we try to prepare early by requesting all the information we need to complete your tax return at the end of the tax year on April 5th. This allows us to avoid the rush and get many tax returns in well ahead of the deadline. Our tax return clients will have received an email from us asking them to upload their documents to our secure platform. This platform is fully compliant with GDPR and data protection regulations, so there is no need to worry about your personal information!

We also send regular reminder emails throughout the year to make sure that all our clients don’t forget to send their documents to us on time. It is important to send us this information as early as possible as you can face a penalty from HMRC if you do not get us the required information in time for us to complete and file your tax return.

By sending us all the information we need before Christmas, you can relax over the festive period knowing that your self-assessment will be taken care of!
