All of a sudden it’s that time of year again – firework smoke in the air, hearty casseroles and that annoying friend who already has all their Christmas presents bought and wrapped.
As Halloween creeps up on us (sorry), in accounting terms it means the first of the self assessment deadlines.
As well as being All Hallows’ Eve, 31st October is the cut off for completing a paper self assessment tax return. So if you are a fan of pen and paper, you need to download a copy of the self assessment form SA100 here , complete it and post it to HMRC at the address below:
HM Revenue and Customs
If you miss the paper deadline of midnight on October 31st, don’t worry, you still have until 31st January 2018 to file your self assessment tax return online, using HMRC’s Government Gateway.
If you haven’t filed this way before you need to open an online account.
For this you will need your UTR and either your NI number or postcode.
Once you have done this HMRC will send you an activation code by post. You must use this to activate your government gateway account within 28 days.
You will then be able to log in and file your return.
HMRC have gone some way in recent years to make the online filing process more user-friendly, and these days it is how the vast majority of people complete their returns.
But if it all sounds like too much hassle, Boox offer a complete self assessment service. You get the peace of mind that your return is being handled by experts and we’ll file it directly with HMRC, saving you valuable time.
