Don’t miss the deadline for your Self Assessment

13 December 2017

HMRC is reminding customers to complete their online tax return ahead of the 31 January 2018 deadline, for tax years 2016/17. Why not do it now and sit back and enjoy the festive period.

It would have been unthinkable twenty years ago, to file Self Assessment (SA) returns on a mobile phone. Today, completing your Self Assessment via your Personal Tax Account can be done anywhere or at any time; on the bus, in a coffee shop or while watching TV, using your phone, a tablet or a computer.

HMRC now has online webchats, live webinars, YouTube videos and social media support for customers which can be accessed at any time, and on any device, to help you fill in and file your returns.

If you are filing your 2016/17 Self Assessment return online for the first time, you will need to create a Government Gateway account, if you haven’t already got one. It’s easy to do, go to Self Assessment on GOV.UK for full details.
