Upcoming Self Assessment Deadline
By DTA | 12th January 2022 | News
You have to submit a Self Assessment by 31 January whether you're self employed as a sole trader or a partner in a business partnership.
The deadline is earlier if you're filing a paper return, on 31 October.
You file your return for the previous tax year. So you need to file a return and pay your bill for tax year 2020-2021 by 31 January 2022.
There's lots of guidance on the gov.uk website and you can also call the Self Assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310. But make sure you leave enough time to get in touch with them if you need to.
If you cannot pay your tax bill on time contact HMRC as soon as possible. HMRC may suggest you pay what you owe in instalments. This is called a Time to Pay arrangement.
