Unsure as to whether or not you need to send in a self-assessment tax return? Well, let me clarify. You MUST send a tax return if, in the last tax year, you were
A) self-employed as a soletrader and earned more than £1000 or
B) If youre a partner in a business partnership. You will not usually need to send a return if your only income is from your wages or pension, but you may need to send one in, if you have any other un-taxed income, such as:
1) Rent from a property you own,
2) Tips and/or commission,
3) Income from savings, dividends or investments or
4) Foreign income. If youre still unsure, there is a lot of information on the HMRC website, www.gov.uk/self-assessment-taxreturns/who-must-send-a-tax-return. Alternatively, if youd like to give us a call at KP Simpson and wed be happy to help keep you on the right track. If you do qualify, but dont want to complete it yourself, then, we can help with that too, and do it all for you.
