Self Assessment Tax Return services

Submitting a self assessment tax return can be a daunting experience. A variety of different people can need to complete a self assessment, from a sole trader to a Limited company director. It can be challenging to know if you need to file a return, what the key dates are and what to include on your tax return.

I am here to help you get yours submitted on time, whilst claiming all the expenses and allowances we can.

What is a self assessment tax return?

Self-assessment or a personal tax return is the system HMRC uses to collect income tax. Tax is typically deduced at source for employment and pension income, but for other untaxed income it needs to be declared on a tax return.

Do I have to submit a self assessment?

You must submit a tax return if:

  • You were a self employed sole trader and earnt more than £1000 in the tax year
  • You were a partner in a business partnership
  • You had a total taxable income of over £100,000
  • You have to pay the high income child benefit charge

You may also need to submit a tax return if you have untaxed income, for example:

  • Covid grants/support payments
  • Rental income from property
  • Dividends
  • Savings or investment income
  • Foreign income

Self assessment tax return deadlines

31st January: The deadline for submitting your online tax return and paying your tax liability for the previous tax year. For example 6th April 2022 – 5th April 2023, will be due 31st January 2024.

If you need to pay payments on account, the first payment on account is also due on 31st January. [See video: What are payments on account?]

31st July: The second payment on account is due.

5th October: You must let HMRC know that you need to submit a tax return, if you have untaxed income for the previous tax year.

31st October: The deadline for submitting your paper tax return, for the previous tax year.

Can I submit the tax return myself?

You can submit a self assessment tax return yourself through your government gateway. However, I would recommend working with an accountant, to ensure it’s correct and compliant with HMRC and that you’re using all the allowances and expenses you can.

In my experience, most people that I have seen submit their own tax returns, either make some sort of mistake or don’t claim all the expenses and allowances they could have.

Tom at Every Cloud Accounting is simply brilliant. He is really easy to work with, and doesn't bamboozle us with a million questions - he does his job brilliantly whilst leaving us to run our business. I have worked with countless accountants over the years and Tom is the first one that I have actually enjoyed working with! In just six months he has set us up on QuickBooks and Dext, has produced a three year financial forecast for a funding application and offered us advice on tax and dividends - all whilst keeping up with our book keeping and VAT returns. I would recommend Tom to anyone looking for an approachable, friendly and professional accountant.
