By midnight on 31st January 2014, you will need to have submitted your self-assessment tax return to HMRC and have paid them any tax due for the 2012-13 financial year. It doesn’t matter if you have zero tax to pay – you still need to submit your tax return on time or you will be hit with an automatic penalty of £100 (delaying even further can, in the worst case scenario, increase this fine to as much as £1,600).
In view of this, for the month of January you can get help 7 days a week from Taxfile in Tulse Hill, South London.
Our team of tax advisers and accountants can help you with your return whatever your employment status. We can help you register with HMRC if you are not already registered, check your form and help fill it in where necessary, make sure you’ve claimed for any allowable expenses to offset tax, make sure you haven’t missed anything or claimed for something you shouldn’t have claimed, compute any tax due (or due to be refunded), and submit your tax return on-line (the only option available this late into January – paper returns are already too late!).
Here are a few examples of pricing (prices are averages):
- Zero-income returns: c. £85 + VAT
- Tax returns for pensioners: from £160 + VAT
- Tax return including PAYE (for the employed): c. £160 + VAT
- Self-employed tax returns: c. £222 + VAT
- Tax returns for manual trades: from £230 + VAT
- Tax returns for taxi or cab drivers: from £230 + VAT
- Tax returns for landlords: c. £330 + VAT
(prices, correct at time of publishing, may be subject to change from time to time).
