Self Assessment Deadline



Whilst your attention currently maybe on all things festive please don't forget that the self-assessment tax return deadline is 31 January 2023.

HMRC impose automatic financial penalties if your tax return is filed late, if only by one day, and, these fines continue to increase until your return has been successfully received.

We have a specialised tax team who can offer you a helping hand with your tax return and provide advice where required.

If you would like us to assist with your tax return or any other matter then please contact the practice. We offer a free, with no obligation, meeting to assess your requirements and would be delighted to welcome you to either of our offices.


Making Tax Digital for ITSA

MTD Logo

Making tax digital (MTD) for self-assessment will now commence 6 April 2024. This will affect all self-employed businesses and landlords with a turnover above £10,000. Businesses effected will need to make quarterly submissions to HMRC using MTD compatible software.

This is additional compliance introduced by HMRC and your self-assessment annual filing requirements will remain unchanged.

As a result of the above you may need to align your current accounting year end with the tax year ,however, this may result in additional tax being due for which early adoption may be advantageous. Please contact your Client Relationship Manager if you have any concerns.

For those of you that are VAT registered aligning your VAT quarters may prove advantageous from an administrative perspective.
If you wish to early adopt or look at suitable software please contact us.
