Self-Assessment Deadline Looms

By midnight on the 31st January 2016 10.39 million self assessment tax returns had been submitted to HMRC (and a fair few of them from our office!), with 4.45 million of these submitted in January alone, out of a total 11.26 million expected to be submitted. You don’t need to be an accountant to work out that there are still several hundred thousand missing.

As always with HMRC there are fines lobbied against any late filing, an initial £100 fixed penalty followed by daily penalties and then a percentage of the tax due if still not filed after 6 and 12 months. With new technology now being used it has never, theoretically, been easier to submit your return. Last year at it’s height 50358 were submitted in an hour.

Moving on 12 months and the deadline is approaching, despite having 9 months to submit many again are waiting till the last minute. HMRC have predicted that this January will be busier than the last one. Here in the Pomegranate Office we are busy beavering away to ensure that all our clients make the deadline.

We have some of our team dedicated to the submission of self-assessments and we have recently taken on many new clients who are seeking assistance in this area.

If you feel like you need help it is not too late to speak to us – just fill in the form on the website or call us on 0161 974 0735. Alternatively, help and advice can be found at GOV.UK or by calling the Self Assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310.
