Self Assessment Tax Return

Tax Return confirmation

Im completing Self Assessment Tax Return using HMRC online software. On the first page of the 'tailor your tax return' section there is a box to be ticked confirming the following 'I commit to providing honest and accurate information in the following return'. Ive not had this appear on any other Return ive completed. Is there any significance for this extra confirmation. The taxpayer does have a six figure income arising from several sources.

Isn't providing honest and accurate information what you are supposed to be doing?
If you are then there's nothing special in that box.

Given the amounts involved, the taxpayer may wish to engage a qualified professional to prepare the UK self-assessment tax return.

Is this your Self Assessment Tax Return, by any chance? Your previous questions suggest you aren't a "finance professional". This is a forum for accountants not people wanting free advice.

I think this means that HMRC have evidence of a source of income that you have not selected in the "tailor your return" section. Make sure you have all the information from the client, since they might be intentionally or unintentionally omitting something.

I've seen one of these this week also. When the client comes in to sign we'll be asking them if there's any income they may have forgotten to tell us about. Their income has fluctuated over the last few years but never got into six figures.

On a couple of other client's returns I've also seen words to the effect "we know you have a job so make sure you fill in the employed section"
