Self Assessment tax returns for the self employed Guide

Self Assessment tax returns for the self employed

If you're self-employed-either as a business owner or freelancer-you will need to complete a Self Assessment tax return.

It's one of the most important tax documents you will need to handle, and there are numerous details you'll have to keep in mind, including deadlines and late penalties.

Our guide offers a quick overview of the essentials-so it's just the article you need if you're getting started.

A Self Assessment (or Self Assessment tax return) is a form that business owners are required to submit to HMRC every year. It details how much you've earned and your sources of income, which enables HMRC to work out the Income Tax and National Insurance you need to pay.

This applies to self-employed workers, who-unlike employees-don't have their income tax automatically deducted from their salaries.

How to pay your Self Assessment Tax

You may already be familiar with the process of paying your Self Assessment tax bill.

Yet, it's always helpful to have a guide on hand-one that you can look over just before you make your payment, so you can be sure that you haven't missed out on important details that can put you at risk of incurring a penalty.

  • Submission of Self Assessment tax return: You need to submit your online tax returns by 31st January. Paper returns are due earlier; these must be filed by 31st October.
  • Payment: Any personal tax due for the previous tax year (6th April-5th April) must be paid up by 31st January. This means that your 2019/20 tax year must be paid up by 31st January 2021.
  • Payments on Account: "Payments on account" are advance payments for your tax bill that are spread out across the year. You'll need to make two payments each year, and these are due on 31st July and 31st January.

Tip: If the payment deadline falls on a public holiday, make sure that your payment is submitted by the final working day.
