For those who have not yet submitted a 2018 tax return, they would normally have already received a reminder letter from HMRC along with a £100 fine.
However for 2019…
There are two upcoming final tax deadlines in January 2019, relating to the 2018 tax return: Submission of the 2018 tax return form, covering the year to 5th April 2018. Payment of the tax liability for 2017/18. Also payment of the first payment on account for 2018/19, if due. Submitting a return after 31st January […]
Many people remember the 31st January tax payment deadline, but often forget there is an additional tax deadline each year at the end of December. Where possible, the deadline for having tax liabilities taken through your tax code in a later year means the return must be processed by HMRC before the end of December at […]
From 6th April 2020, there are changes to how capital gains tax(CGT) on residential property is reported and paid. Rather than at present, where the details are reported in the next tax return and the tax paid the following 31st January, there will only be 30 days to submit a CGT return and make a […]
I reported back in July 2018 that HMRC were planning to change the rent a room relief rules so that it would only apply in cases where the owner occupied the property at the same time. However, it has just been announced in the 2018 October Budget that these planned changes have been cancelled. Rent […]
There are two allowances that will be changing from April 2020 onwards. These only affect people who have taxable gains on their main residence. 1) Lettings relief – this is an additional relief available (up to a limit of £40,000) to those who have lived in a property as their main residence that is being […]
There had been worries that the VAT registration limit (£85,000pa) would be reduced – increasing costs for people not able to reclaim VAT as well as forcing more people into the quarterly tax returns that start next year for those who are VAT registered. While the position will be kept under review, there is now […]
The planned increase to the personal allowance has been brought forward to next year. From 6th April 2019, the personal allowance will be £12,500pa. The basic rate band increase is also brought forward to 2019, to £37,500. This means that the income limit before someone pays the higher rate will be £50,000 from 6th April […]
The first tax return deadline for 2018 returns is approaching… 31st October 2018. Although this deadline is for people submitting a paper tax return, it is a good deadline for everyone to use. HMRC print the statements of account after the end of October, before sending these out in December, so to ensure they are […]

I was one of the winners of the 2014 Small Business Saturday 100, resulting in an invite to Downing Street.
Small Business Saturday is the UK's most successful small business campaign. Only one hundred of the UK’s top small businesses are selected each year. They act as trail-blazers in the official count-down towards the annual event.
In 2018, I returned to Number 11 for a Small Business Saturday event to celebrate small businesses in the UK.
I have also won several awards in the Surrey Digital Awards from 2015 - 2018. Competitors in the awards included much larger businesses throughout Surrey.
