Self Assessment | AccountingWEB

Self Assessment

Stress awareness day highlights a debilitating issue which plagues accountants squeezed by the pressures of deadlines and the profession. 


An employer didn't collect Student Loan from an employee in the 2011-12 tax year and it was coded out to 2013-14.  Silly question - does HMRC actually have the power to code out student loan?


The summer break is a distant memory and we are now very much bunkered down for the onset of winter and with that comes the dreaded 31 January deadline looming yet again.

Most taxpayers submitting their 2014/15 tax returns by paper must do so by midnight 31 October 2015.

You will soon have to limber up, flex your number crunching muscles, get on your marks, and sprint the self assessment marathon.

Formula 1 racing driver Valtteri Bottas talks to AccountingWEB about keeping cool under pressure, what he looks for in an accountant and tax.


Good afternoon all,

I've been approached by an Iranian individual who has a Romanian wife, and has the following issue:


The annual tax return may be heading for the big tax office in the sky in the years ahead, but AccountingWEB members are already preparing for the self assessment storm this winter.

Unless already registered for Self-Assessment, taxpayers who have chargeable income or gains for the 2014/15 tax year must notify HMRC of this by the 5th October 2015.


From time to time a personal tax return is prepared and it is apparent that further returns will not be required so we tell the client we will attempt to get them removed from self assessment.
