Self Assessment: Remember, remember the Fifth of October

Registration deadline: 5 October 2020

Whilst it may not have quite the same ring, if you think you owe tax for the year ended 5 April 2020 and are not already registered for Self Assessment, you should do so by the end of next Monday.

Do I need to complete a tax return?

There are several reasons why HMRC might want a tax return from you and some of the more common include:

  • Being self employed or a company director.

  • Renting property.

  • Having a household income above £50,000 and claiming Child Benefit.

  • Earning untaxed income.

  • Having taxable savings and investment income, or selling certain investments at a profit.

  • Being a high earner with income over £100,000.

What if I miss the deadline?

It is important to make sure you register, file and pay on time as HMRC can charge penalties if any of the deadline dates are missed.

A failure to notify penalty can apply if you do not tell HMRC about a tax liability when you should have. The amount of penalty is based on the tax due and the taxpayer’s behaviour in helping HMRC deal with the liability.
