When to Complete a Tax Return

Self-assessment is a system of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) used to collect income tax. The tax is usually deducted from wages (both part-time and full-time employees), pensions and savings income.

You should complete a self-assessment tax return if you have earned income or profits from:

When to Complete a Tax Return

  • Sole Trading

  • Business Partnerships

  • Property Income

  • Foreign Income or Gains

  • Capital Gains

  • Non-UK Residents or Dual Residents

If you are not registered for self-assessment you need to inform HMRC, by registering no later than 5th October following the tax year you had income from self-employed.

The deadline for filing a return is 31st January after the end of the tax year for online submission and 31st October for paper returns. The payment deadline is 31st January following the end of the tax year or 31st July for payment on account.

Self-Assessment Returns

As accountants, we understand that self-assessment can be time-consuming and confusing for busy individuals and self-employed people. It can also be costly if penalties are imposed by HMRC for missing deadlines, filing incorrect returns, or maintaining inappropriate records.

With our comprehensive individual tax services, our specialised small business accountant team will work on your tax returns for you, giving you peace of mind while also freeing up your valuable time to focus on other tasks.

We will calculate how much tax you have to pay, minimise your bills wherever possible, and complete and file your tax return accordingly. Our accountants will always explain your results before we submit anything.

  • Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gain Tax

Capital gains tax (CGT) may be incurred by many different transactions, most commonly the disposal of shares, sale of property, and sale of a business. You can also have a CGT bill from transferring an asset to a family member even if you don’t receive any consideration for it.


The deadline for paying is the next 31 January after the end of the tax year in which you made your gains. For example, if you made a gain between 6 April 2022 and 5 April 2023 the deadline to pay the tax due will be 31 January 2024. You can be charged interest and have to pay a penalty if your payment is late.


Fortunately, there are many reliefs available to minimise bills or avoid them altogether. For instance, there are attractive reliefs for disposing of a business. Contact a member of our team today to discuss your potential liability for capital gains tax.
