    5 tips for filling in your tax return.

    5 tips for filling out your paper tax return Self-assessment form must reach HMRC by 31 October

    The deadline for paper tax returns is 31 October 2016. If self-assessment taxpayers miss this they face a 100 fine. Alternatively, they can file online and gain an extra three months.

    Read more on this advice from Which? HERE




    Yes, it is that time of year again and many who need to fill in tax returns cannot afford expensive accountants to do it for them.

    With this in mind, I think that the advice contained in the above page of Which? should be a great help.

    I am sure that many people put the thought to the back of their mind when it comes to sending in the tax return docs.

    While it is good to know that it is due soon, it is still a bit irritating to get reminded of it.

    Running a business, of course I have a tame accountant, but he doesn't do my books or send in my completed tax returns for nothing.

    It is the ones that need to send in the tax return that have no-one to help them that I care about, as any company that needs to get this done can lay the cost paid to an accountant against that tax.

    A good accountant can save any company much more than the cost of his or her fees if they are good at their job.

    Thanks Papa, as this is one time of the year I never look forward to.

    I have found a site that tells us that many thousands of people now do not have to fill in self-assessment forms.

    The Guardian has prepared a way to find out if you are due to do this or not and it looks as if I might not need to send in a tax-return form ever again.

    See this advice from The Guardian here: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2013/jan/15/self-assessment-last-year-fill-form

    Have a look and come back an tell me/us what you think.
