A tax return is a financial document submitted either in an online form or paper form to HMRC each tax year. It includes a full breakdown of business or personal income and other related costs and expenses. Using these figures, the tax return will calculate how much tax you need to pay.
The two basic types of tax returns are those for individuals, which are often better known as self-assessment tax returns, income tax returns or personal tax returns, and those from organisations like companies or partnerships, in the form of company tax returns and partnership tax returns.
Personal tax returns all feature the main section consisting of the most common types of income like bank dividends and interest received, donations to charities and other common tax reliefs. Other income included in the tax return in separate sections is any profits or salary from self-employment or a job.
Important to note not all kinds of income need to be included on your tax returns, including the interest earned on money kept in ISA.
While you may realise you will be required to complete a tax return if you are self-employed, receive money during a tax year that tax is due on, or are a limited company director, you may not understand the ins and outs.
In addition to the above, other common reasons you may need to file a tax return includes:
Although you can, in theory, file your self-assessment tax return, you need to weigh up whether it is a good use of your time and if you are going to do it correctly.
To avoid a fine, you need to submit your correctly filled out partnership and individual self-assessment tax return by January 31st at the latest. While limited company self-assessment tax returns can be sent within 9 months of the end of the tax year.
As the process of filing tax returns is fraught with HMRC inquiry powers and penalties, you need to make sure it is filled correctly, it is filed on time and all your records are kept up to date.
As individual self-assessment returns can consist of more than 10 pages alongside supplementary information, it may not be something you want to handle yourself.
This is why we would recommend you consider hiring Tax Bite accountants to handle your tax return needs, including filing the return accurately and on time.
For paper returns by post, you need to submit them by midnight on October 31st. Whereas if you are submitting your return online, you have until January 31st at midnight.Get A Quote Now

Many people consider the two titles to be the same, accountant and tax agent. However, there are differences between the two, you should know about. Tax agents generally work on your tax returns, always making sure they are filed correctly on time. While accountants are focused on the future and seen as financial business strategists.
