When is The Deadline for Tax Returns: The Self Assessment Tax Return Deadline is 31 January Each Year, this is also the date that any tax must be paid
Self Assessment Tax Returns for individuals, partnerships and Sole Traders are required to be submitted online to HMRC by 31 January in the year following the tax year being reported upon.
For the purposes of Self Assessment the tax year runs from April 6th to April 5th each year.
An example of the above is shown below.
For the tax year 6 April 2011 to the tax year 5 April 2012, the self assessment tax return deadline is 31 January 2013.
The January 31 deadline is only for self assessment returns that are submitted online, if you need or choose to submit your tax return in paper form then they should be submitted by 31 October in the year that the return relates to.
We submit all individuals tax returns online so the deadline we work to is 31 January, however January is a very busy time for us and the number of new clients that we can take on during this period is limited, if you are required to complete a tax return we strongly recommend that you organise the information well before the deadline of 31 January as the fines that are automatically levied from HMRC can be extremely large.
