HMRC have issued a reminder to taxpayers that the self assessment deadline is approaching.
Self Assessment taxpayers have until 31 January 2023 to submit their online return for the 2021/22 tax year (the deadline for paper tax returns was 31 October 2022).
More than 66,000 taxpayers beat the clock and filed their tax return on 6 April – the first day of the new tax year
HMRC is urging Self Assessment taxpayers others to complete their return as soon as they can so can budget to make the payment by 31 January 2023. Filing early also means you will have time to access the number of payment options available. If a repayment is due, it can also be claimed back sooner.
On 24th October Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’s Director General for Customer Services, said:
“With 100 days to go until the online deadline, there’s still time to complete your tax return, to budget and look into the range of payment options if you need to.”
Those new to Self Assessment for the 2021 to 2022 tax year may include:
those who are newly self-employed and earned more than £1,000
a new partner in a business partnership
those who have received any untaxed income
those claiming Child Benefit but they or their partner have an income above £50,000
