The deadline for filing 2017/18 paper tax returns was 31st October. Therefore your tax return must be filed online by 31st January in order to avoid being issued with a late filing penalty.
Therefore, you will now need to register for HM Revenue & Customs’ Online Services and obtain an Activation Code. Please note, it can take seven working days to receive your Activation Code, which means you must register as soon as possible in order to obtain your Code in time for the filing deadline of 31st January 2019.
Alternatively, your local TaxAssist Accountant can file your tax return for you- which could save you tax, stress and time. Please feel free to contact us to arrange your initial free, no-obligation meeting.
