Self Assessment Tax Return

A Self-Assessment will generally be required if you have income that has not been taxed at source.  This is obviously for people who run their own businesses as sole traders or partners in a partnership and are taxed on the business profits but can also include anyone, either employed or a director, who is taxed at source but only at basic rate and with higher rate tax is due on other income.

A self-assessment return is due by 31 January after the tax year i.e. for the tax year 2013/2014 (that is ending on 5 April 2014) a return must be filed, online, by 31 January 2015. This deadline is 31 October 2014 if you are sending a paper return. Tax is due by the same date and where this is not your first return, payments on account will also be due.  Payments on account are due on 31 January in the tax year and 31 July after the tax year and each payment will be approximately 50% of the previous year’s liability.
