Register for self assessment by 5 October

Oct 2, 2019 | Uncategorized

There are a couple of tax deadlines coming up. The first is 5 October which is the date by when you need to register for self-assessment.

You’ll need to do this if you didn’t file self assessment return last year, and you have income in the year to 5 April. There are some special circumstances, but broadly this includes:

  • Self-employment income (ie into your own account, not through a company)
  • Property income including through Airbnb
  • Investment income above £10k (including dividends from your own company)
  • Total income above £100k

There is a simple way to check on the HMRC website here.

if you need to register and have never sent in a tax return:

And if you have sent a return in the past but not last year you’ll need to re-register using the UTR (Unique Taxpayer Reference) that you may have lost.

The other deadline is 31 October which is the deadline for submitting paper forms. Which about half a million people still do, apparently. But not you, because you’re going to sign up to use untied.
