Self assessment

Completing your self assessment tax return can often be a stressful task, and many individuals don’t have the time to give their financial affairs the attention they deserve. It is essential that accurate returns are submitted on time to avoid costly penalties when deadlines are missed, incorrect returns are delivered or appropriate records are not retained or presented.

Who is required to submit a self assessment tax return

Individuals who are self-employed as a sole trader (and earned more than £1,000 in a tax year) or who are a partner in a business partnership must send a tax return.

You may also need to send a tax return if you:

  • have rental or other income from property
  • receive income from savings, investments and dividends
  • you total income was more than £100,000 for the year
  • you or your partner’s income was more than £50,000 for the year and you claimed child benefit
  • received income from outside of the UK
  • received income from a trust
  • received a payment or charge on a private pension
  • sold an asset creating a capital gain
