There are just 31 days left of 2020!

However you’re celebrating, we’re wishing you all the best ahead of the festive period!

Did you know that around 12,000 of us submit our tax returns on Christmas Day and Boxing Day each year – with 248 people submitting their returns before 8am on Christmas morning. With untied, you can submit your tax return at any time and in a fraction of the time of a manual submit – allowing you to enjoy your Christmas stress-free!

This has been yet another busy month for untied ahead of the January tax deadline.

Key dates ⏳

Open now – phase 3 of the Government Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) is open up to 29 January (more information below)

31 January – tax filing deadline day – 61 days to go!

As you tag transactions or prepare your return, untied updates your tax calculation, so you know what you’re likely to owe.

🔭 Watch out for HMRC scams

Unfortunately scams are at an all-time high in the months leading up to the self-assessment deadline – be careful not to be caught out by email, text or phone scams. Sadly lots of people are getting fake texts claiming to be HMRC.

We have also listed the real HMRC numbers on our help system if you need to contact them.

📆 Getting your returns in early

It’s good to get your returns in as early as you possibly can, and enjoy the glow of being all sorted. Let us know stories of what you do to make this happen!
