Deadline for self-assessment tax return registration this week

The deadline for registering for 2011/12 self-assessment tax returns is October 5th.

Taxpayers who need to register this month are those:

  • whose circumstances have altered;
  • who are starting a business;
  • who have untaxed income from property and expenses;
  • who have expenses to claim over £2,500; or
  • who have capital gains tax to pay.

If any of these circumstances apply to you, then you must register with HMRC or face a penalty.

Once you have registered, HMRC will notify you if you need to complete a tax return afterwards.

To register you will need your NI number and contact details, plus information on your business if you are self-employed.
