In this video I go through the basics of a self assessment tax return.

If you earned income in a particular UK tax year (6th April – 5th April) that has not already been subject to tax at source, then you will most likely have to declare and submit it via a self-assessment tax return. Examples include:

  • Landlords with buy to let income
  • Company directors who are paid a dividend
  •  People who earn in excess of £100,000 per annum
  • If you’ve made a capital gain (or loss) 
  • CIS subcontractors
  • Investors
  • If you have been notified by HMRC that you need to complete one
You can absolutely file your self-assessment return yourself. However, if you don’t have the time or feel like you may need help, then using an accountant is a simple and stress solution.
