HMRC remind taxpayers of looming SA deadline
Released 02 January 2019
According to HMRC, some 5.5m taxpayers have less than a month to complete their Self Assessment (SA) tax returns before the 31 January deadline.
In total, more than 11.5 million 2017/18 tax returns are due and HMRC expect the vast majority of taxpayers to complete their returns and pay any tax owed by the end of the month. According to HMRC, approximately 52% of taxpayers have already filed their returns, as of 31 December 2018, and more than 5 million have completed their returns online (88% of the total returns filed).
Self Assessment guidance is available on the HMRC website here.
