People may be aware of the usual tax return deadlines at the end of October and January, but can often miss the registration deadline which is earlier.
If you need to submit a tax return for the year to 5th April 2014 then you need to register with HMRC by 5th October 2014.
Otherwise you could find that you receive a £100 fine for late registration, even if you don’t actually owe any tax.
It is therefore important to register before the deadline – you can find out how to register for self-assessment by clicking on the link.
You may also want to consider getting professional help with your tax return and accounts – an adviser can deal with the registration forms for you, as well as assisting with the preparation and making sure that you are claiming for all the tax reliefs you are entitled to.
