What is a Tax Return?

A Tax Return is a form that you fill in on paper or online where you report details of your taxable income and any capital gains, as well as claiming tax allowances and tax reliefs. HMRC may provide you with a tax return each tax year. The tax year runs from the 6th of April until the 5th of April the next year. If you receive a tax return, the law requires you to fill it in. HMRC then uses the information that you provide to work out your tax bill and whether you are due a refund or not.

Important Information About Tax Returns

Who should complete a Self Assessment?

Most taxpayers do not have to fill in a self-assessment tax return if HMRC believes that they are paying the right amount of tax through the PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system on your wages/salary or on an occupational pension. HMRC will issue you annual tax return forms if you:

  • Are self-employed.
  • Are a company director of a profitable company.
  • Have rental or any other type of income stemming from property.
  • Any other income which is not taxed before you get it.
  • Have paid extra tax because you claim Child Benefit and someone in your household earns over £50,000.

If you are a self-employed or in a partnership and you make a loss or stop trading within that tax year, you should still fill in your tax return form.

If you are a pensioner

Most pensioners do not fill in tax returns. Tax-free allowances for people born before the 6th of April 1948 are affected by annual income, so therefore in these cases a tax return may occasionally be required.

 If you have not received a tax return

It’s your responsibility to tell HMRC that you have received income which is tax payable.

Completing the Tax Return form

Deadline for sending back your Tax Return tax return contact phone number

The dates for sending back your tax return depend on whether you send it online or via post. A paper tax return must be received by HMRC by the 31st October. A tax return submitted online should be received by the 31st January. There are penalties if your tax return is late which will increase the longer it is left unsubmitted. If it is left a day, the penalty will begin at £100 and will increase to £300 or 5% of the tax due, whichever is more. In serious cases, it could be 100% of the tax that is owed.


The Paper Tax Return form

As long as your paper tax return is submitted by the 31st October, HMRC guarantees to calculate your tax bill by the 31st January. Alternatively, you can work it out yourself using Tax Calculation Summary pages.

The Online Tax Return

To use the online return service, you will first have to register by going online and following the process. You will have to wait a week for your Personal Identification number so be aware of the deadline if you choose to submit your return in this manner.

Errors on Tax Returns

If you or HMRC find an error on your tax return form, it can quite often be put right by a phone call. If there has been undeclared income, HMRC may consider opening an enquiry. If this happens, you should seek advice at the Citizens Advice Bureau or somewhere similar. contact tax return number
