Do you do your Self Assessment returns online?
21 January 2016
HMRC is expecting almost 1.5m returns to be submitted in the 10 days up to the 31 January deadline. When filing online you may receive a prompt that you can now view Self Assessment through your Personal Tax Account (PTA). Please take this opportunity to have a look at the account.
When it went live last year many CIPP members reported issues with the Verify process. For this year's SA peak you will have already used the Government Gateway, so access to the PTA will be much easier.
If your account is available you will be invited to view it. Just accept and you will be in the account by entering an extra code sent to your mobile. Join the 500k people that have now accessed their PTA with over 70% finding it easy to use.
