Self-Assessment Tax Returns in Leigh-on-Sea

For the self-employed, there’s one task every year that can provide more stress and headaches than any other. We’re talking self-assessment tax returns, which must be filed with HMRC every year, without fail. They can be complex and are a legal document, plus mistakes can cost significant sums of money, which is why the savvy self-employed worker uses an accountant to complete the process for them.

At MCL Accountants in Leigh-on-Sea, we’ve completed thousands of SA tax returns, for a range of different local and national businesses. We’ve got the knowledge and experience to complete your SA tax return perfectly, ensuring you pay the minimum tax while also remaining within the law. Why not contact one of our team members today and see how MCL can help with your tax return this year?

Millions of people file a self-assessment tax return every year, but what exactly are they? Well, they’re essentially a legal document showing all incomings and outgoings at your business. These figures are then used by HMRC to calculate how much income tax and national insurance you need to pay. All self-employed workers must fill one in, as must everyone earning over £100,000 per year.

There are strict deadlines for submitting and paying tax returns, which all self-employed workers must know about. If submitting using paper, the return must be filed before midnight on October 31st, while those filing online must get their tax return completed by midnight on January 31st. All money owed must also be paid by January 31st. If you miss any deadlines, you could be fined or even prosecuted.

You are under no legal obligation to have your tax return completed by an accountant, meaning it’s perfectly acceptable to complete your own tax return. However, you must remember that the document is a legal one, so it must be filled in perfectly. Failure to fill in the document accurately can lead to legal ramifications.

What’s more, filling in your tax return yourself can lead to you paying far more tax than necessary. Accountants know exactly how to reduce your tax bill without breaking the law, and the money you save is often more than the accountant’s fees.
