Taxes Required To File In HMRC
As an individual in the UK, you must file various taxes with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). These taxes include income tax, National Insurance contributions, capital gains tax, and inheritance tax.
Income tax is a tax on your earnings from employment, self-employment, and certain other sources of income. The income tax you pay is based on your total income for the tax year, which runs from April 6 to April 5 of the following year.
Your employer or pension provider will deduct income tax from your pay before you receive it, and you may also need to file a self-assessment tax return if you have other sources of income.
National Insurance Contributions
National Insurance contributions (NICs) are payments made by employees and employers to fund the UK’s social security system. As an employee, you will have NICs deducted from your pay, and as an employer, you will need to make contributions on your employee’s behalf. NICs are based on your earnings, and the rates vary depending on your income.
Capital Gains Tax
Capital gains tax is a tax on the profit from selling certain assets, such as property, shares, and personal possessions worth more than £6,000. The amount of tax you pay depends on the asset’s value when you acquired it and when you sold it.
Certain exemptions and reliefs are available, and it’s important to seek professional advice if you’re unsure whether you need to pay capital gains tax.
An inheritance tax is a tax on the value of an estate after someone has died. The tax is based on the estate’s value above a certain threshold, which is currently set at £325,000. The tax rate is 40% on the value above the threshold, but certain exemptions and reliefs are available, such as gifts to charity.
