What to put on the SAR

Secretive deceased

Didn't find your answer?

I've been asked to help a widow complete a 2018-19 tax return (due in by 22/02/20). The problem she/I have is that the deceased was vey secretive and kept all money/income dealings from his wife. I have a copy of the 2017-18 HMRC summary which helps but doesn't give an accurate picture as for example he was an inveterate gambler generally loss making but sometimes had large  cash wins ( I know gambling isn't taxable.) This gives problems with analysing his bank and living expenses to arrive at his income ( he was self employed)

Has anyone had this situation and can advise what to include on the return- eg should it be best guess with a note

The estate is insolvent overall so not IHT considerations
