Q&A: Donít think I need a tax return

Date Published: 11th February 2013

A few years ago, I was running my own business but I got offered a great job so I packed up my sole trade and now my only source of income is from my employment. But HMRC have sent me a tax return to complete. Do I have to fill it in- or is there some way I can tell them it isn’t required?

If HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has asked you to complete a tax return but you think you don't need one, you can call the Self Assessment Helpline. They will tell you whether you still need to complete a tax return.

Alternatively, your local TaxAssist Accountant would be happy to liaise with HMRC on your behalf. Feel free to contact us to be put in touch with your local office.
